S-23 Sing-A-Long Songbook (size A4, 52 pages, for teachers and individuals)
A fun way to learn to read and spell English words
- Very useful songbook, with large text and sound-boxes, for teaching groups or classes about the 44 sounds and 120 keyspellings of English.
- Use this songbook with the S-24 SING-A-LONG CDs (Product Code S-24 ISBN 978-1-906295-24-0), two discs with over two hours of music. Sing-a-long with the soundtracks on the Vocal Disc, again and again, until your learners are so familiar with the sound-songs they can read the words to sing them using only the backing tracks on the Instrumental Disc.
- A ‘whole-picture’ size A3 version of the 2-sided S-46 English Spelling Chart A4, which is normally encapsulated, is on the centre pages of this book.
- Ideally, before and after singing each sound-song, encourage your learners to say the sound and then name the letter/s in each of the keyspellings.
- If you think it is a good idea, use the S-98 Keywords, Sounds And Spellings Book, and a deskchart or wallchart to locate the sound and spellings in some or all of the keywords that contain the same sound.
- Full colour, 52 pages, A4 book. 300gsm gloss laminated cover with 170gsm gloss pages.
- The S-24 SING-A-LONG CDs are also a good introduction to a large number of different musical styles and dance rhythms from around the world - as each sound-song has been written in a different musical style. These include African Round, blues, boogie, Charleston, disco, hard rock, Hawaiian, hip hop, Irish Dance, jazz, jive, pasodoble, pop, ragtime, reggae, twist and waltz.
