This photocopiable collection of Literacy Games from Croydon Literacy Support Centre will provide a good resource for teachers of children with Specific Learning Difficulties.
Many games can be adapted for a variety of purposes as games can provide the necessary over learning and repetition required for both reading and writing. The constant reinforcement of words helps develop an automatic recall which is essential for fluent reading , while practice of regular letter patterns helps children develop the ability to generalise and become aware of the structure of the English Language.
The 22 games included in this book cover the development of phonological awareness, use of onset and rime, short vowels and vowel digraphs, initial and final blends, simple suffixing and syllable division, High Frequency Words and more.
This is the last copy and the cover is slightly shop soiled. The interior, however, is pristine.
