Erica's Chicks, Trish the Fish and Flo the Flamingo
This set is one of a range of specialised resources written by a Speech and Language Therapist. Each tale is fun and engaging, purposefully targets speech sounds/vocabulary and features beautifully illustrated engaging characters.
Early Soundplay Set 2 includes Erica's Chicks (targeting "ck"), Trish the Fish (targeting "sh") and Flo the Flamingo (targeting "ng") as well as supporting CD read by award winning actress Sophie Thompson and offers opportunities for focused listening and a read-along option with page turns for emergent and reluctant readers as well as functioning as a read-aloud model for practitioners.
‘What I like about these resources are that they are fun, funny and very appealing to children and adults. They are very useful for developing very young children’s phonological awareness and speech development, including all-important feel for words that rhyme. They support emerging understanding of the link between speech sounds and how they are written. They are appealing for children who already understand phonics and are working on their spelling.’ Michael Jones, Early Years Consultant and Author.
