This particular story is one of three from the GRADE 2 / BAR level 2 - 160 words.
(Long vowel sounds, CVCC and CCVC and polysyllabic words).

Colourful and durable board covers open to 32 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Beautifully illustrated, in vibrant colours, throughout, with meaningful facial expressions enhancing this super story.

From the back cover:-

'A shoot was growing by the wall. Will it grow up to be a flower for Gran?'

Gran doesn't have a garden, only a window box.... but her good advice pays off in the end!


General information about this series of books:-

'READING CORNER PHONICS has been structured to provide maximum support for children learning to read through synthetic phonics.
The stories are designed for independent reading but may also be used by adults for sharing with young children.

The teaching of early reading through synthetic phonics focuses on the 44 sounds in the English language, and how these sounds correspond to their written form in the 26 letters of the alphabet.
Carefully controlled vocabulary makes these books accessible for children at different stages of phonics teaching, progressing from simple CVC (consonant-vowel consonant) words such as 'top' (t-o-p) to trisyllabic words such as 'messenger' (mess-en-ger)
READING CORNER PHONICS allows children to read words in context, and also provides visual clues and repetition to further support their reading. These books will help develop the all important confidence in the new reader, and encourage a love of reading that will last a lifetime!

READING CORNER PHONICS covers two grades of synthetic phonics teaching, with three levels at each grade. Each level has a certain number of words per story, indicated by the number of bars on the spine of the book.'
