... a reception class teacher and this book is so useful to use at school
on 4 October 2014
I'm a reception class teacher and this book is so useful to use at school. The children love the wipe clean books and will sit for long periods of time completing the book during independent free play. I have just ordered more of these to use for a group handwriting activity. The book has the 'letter and sounds' letter formation apart from the 'k' where it is a loopy 'k'. Unlike the front cover in the picture shown, the letter 'a' tail does actually have a flick (letters and sounds formation), which when I ordered I really hoped that it would. There weren't any pictures showing any pages in the book so I bought the book hoping it would use the correct formation we use at school . I was very happy when the book arrived!!! The only downside (as previously mentioned in another review) is the phonics examples at the top of each page corresponding to each letter and not accurate. The 's' page gives phonic examples as 'shoes' and 'sheep' which phonetically start with a 'sh' sound not a 's' sound. These are however small and at the top of each page. I do not use these for phonics , only for letter formation and handwriting practise so I do not see these as a problem. Overall a great product especially as the children LOVE doing them independently and as a group!!
