PHONICS THROUGH POETRY
Teaching Phonemic Awareness Using PoetryBy Babs Bell Hajdusiewicz. Carefully prepared lessons use the rhythm and rhyme of poetry to teach phonics. Two books each contain more than 100 read-aloud poems—some by well-known children's authors, others written specifically for this series—that immerse children in zesty poems to focus attention on selected language sounds. A well-considered teaching apparatus accompanies each poem: word lists using the targeted sound, a "focusing talk" to cement and extend students' connection to the poem, and an idea for a hands-on activity. Photocopy masters supply "letter cards" for sounds the book targets. Multiple indexes (by a poem's first line, by title, by sound, and so on) aid ease of use. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. Approximately 270 pages each. ©1999.
