Item no: SB179
Guided reading set - Dandelion Readers units 11-20 series 2 x 6 of each book
Suitable for: 3-5, 5-6, 6-7, 7+
An excellent synthetic phonics reading scheme, designed to bridge the gap between learning initial phonics and the first level in available reading schemes. Letter sounds are introduced in a structured sequence, using motivating stories, appealing characters and imaginative illustrations on photographic backgrounds. Text is on a cream background to make it reader friendly using minimal sight words and encouraging the practice of blending skills. The books in Units 11-20 move beyond single letters to teaching digraph sounds, again in a systematic sequence. These are as follows: Unit 11 (ch); Unit 12 (sh); Unit 13 (th); Unit 14 (ck); Unit 15 (ng); Unit 16 (qu,ve); Unit 17 (wh). From Units 17-20 two-syllable words are introduced with common endings as follows: Unit 17 (simple two-syllable words); Unit 18 (words ending with -ed), Unit 19 (words ending with -ing) and Unit 20 (words ending with -le). Guided Reading Pack contains 6 of each of the 10 books (one for each unit).
