From the Back Cover

This unique resource gives classroom reading teachers and specialists hundreds of stimulating hands-on activities for developing children's knowledge of the alphabet and letter-sound relationships, plus scores of reproducible book and word lists that can be used to tailor almost any of the activities in the book to a specific phonics skill!

Each activity is tested, complete, and ready-to go — geared to involve the child's senses in the learning experience. It provides all of the details and directions you need to use or adapt it successfully in your own classroom. And many of the activities also include helpful illustrations and/or reproducible activity sheets.

For easy use, all materials are printed in a big 8-1/4" x 11" spiral-bound format that folds flat for photocopying and organized into four sections:

  • HANDS-ON PHONICS ACTIVITIES FOR PRE-READERS (Grades K-1) Section 1 is packed with games, puzzles and activities to build letter recognition and phonemic awareness, from A to Z. Tactile activities like Apple Cutout and Totebag Sort support the visual skills needed to identify each letter. Additional activities, such as cooking (party punch), mini-field trips (to a park or pizza parlor), and interviews (with a plumber or painter) support beginning sound knowledge.
  • HANDS-ON PHONICS ACTIVITIES FOR EMERGING READERS (Grades 1-2) Section 2 provides a wide range of individual, small group, and whole class activities to introduce, supplement, and reinforce phonics skills. These include sorting and manipulative activities such as Tissue Box Sorts, Word Family Cards and Silent "E" Strips ... puzzles and games such as Blending Buddies Card Game and Pick-up Sticks Phonics ... as well as many simple activity cards children can use independently.
  • HANDS-ON PHONICS ACTIVITIES FOR DEVELOPING READERS (Grades 2-5) Section 3 offers a variety of activities for continuing the teaching of phonics in meaningful contexts to developing readers. Included are many sorting and manipulative activities such as Homonyms, Synonyms, Antonyms Sort and R-Controlled Vowels Word Chain, games like Flick-it Phonics Fun and Compound Relay, and independent activity cards for practice in skills such as possessives and the vowel digraph oo.
  • LISTS FOR DEVELOPING HANDS-ON PHONICS ACTIVITIES Section 4 includes over 85 book and word lists for making your own activities to meet the needs of your students. The book lists range from alphabet books for pre-readers to vowel and consonant awareness books. The word lists cover initial and final consonant sounds and blends, silent and variant consonant sounds, short and long vowels, r-controlled vowels, word families, rhyming words, compound words, prefixes, suffixes, homonyms, synonyms, and antonyms.
You'll also find a special Appendix at the end filled with additional useful materials, including Phonics Rules ... reproducible gameboards for Tic-Tac-Toe, Bingo, Lotto, and Phonics 500 ... reproducible Alphabet Mini Flash Cards ... and a Phonics Assessment Profile you can copy and use to monitor each child's progress in mastering specific phonics skills!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful multisensory variety June 23, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A teacher at school had this book and I decided I had to have it too. I am an occupational therapist. We work together with special ed students who are having difficulty learning to read and write at the k-1-2 level. This book contains the wide variety of multisensory activities needed to grab the attention and enable understanding for these students. Activities like this make learning fun and interesting for all of us.

I have had this book for over 4 years now and have used it with children from kindergarten through 2nd grade. I have manipulated the large picture pages to include handwriting lines for the children to practice writing their letters. The students consistently love the pictures that accompany each letter of the alphabet. There are word lists including: short and long vowel sounds, digraphs, blends, initial and ending consonants, silent 'e' endings, etc. This book is a keeper.
