I think I paid 2 euros for this book at a vide-grenier last summer… A bargain! You could grab it for a few pounds and it would still be worth it!

You may want to use this book for your children to listen to poetry, read it or even write it. Each poem focuses on a specific sound.
You could read the poem for the children to guess what the main sound it ; you could get them to listen/read for specific words about a topic ; you could use one of the poems as a template so they write their own poems.
This book could actually also easily be used at KS4 (I did use it with a Y10 class on National Poetry Day !).
This book can help you and your children when you are teaching phonics as each poem covers a single sound with different graphemes.
The children will really enjoy the silliness of the poems and the pictures whilst learning (more) about certain phonemes.
Topics or themes :
There are poems about body parts, family, animals, a spider and a fly, as well as food…. and much more !!
Too many grammar points to mention here…
You could do a poem, now and then, to reinforce certain sounds and topics.
You can find out more about the author and other books she has written here.
