The Ladybird I'm Ready for Phonics readers use simple language and engaging, humorous stories to help children develop their phonics skills. The series has been carefully written to give gradual, structured practice of the synthetic phonics your child is learning at school. The books introduce phonemes in a similar order to the way they are taught in schools and also provide practice of common tricky words, such as the and said, that cannot be sounded out. Level 12 teaches different pronunciations for the same grapheme, for example the /i/ in 'milk' is pronounced differently to the /i/ in 'tiger'.
The series closely follows the order that a child is taught phonics in school, from initial letter sounds to key phonemes and beyond. It helps to build reading confidence through practice of these phonics building blocks, and reinforces school learning in a fun way.
With simple vocabulary and subtle comprehension cues, these phonic readers will encourage, motivate and ignite children's excitement about reading.
