"Ready for R" includes colour coded "R" word lists, fun and easy teaching tips, along with silly stories that will make students want to keep practicing. "Ready for R" is designed to spark speech, language and literacy development, inspire story-telling and encourage ESL students.

Special Features
  • Colour coded R word lists
  • Fun and easy-to-follow teaching tips
  • Silly stories that kids and adults enjoy

For nearly four decades I have been teaching children to articulate the sound r, using all the materials available. This book is different, and a very welcome change. It is fun! In one book you have word lists, reading, picture description, little gems of information, and questions to ponder, all presented in the format of original, whimsical poems and wonderful brightly-coloured illustrations. I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
Accompanied by wonderfully quirky illustrations the text is designed to capture the attention of all ages. In structured steps words designed to assist those children, ESL learners and all ages who have difficulty with the pronunciation of the letter "R" are presented in a fun and catchy format. Useful for parents, teachers and speech language professionals the book is also a great read for everyone!
