The activities in this book provide an excellent source of phonics practice for primary students. The pages can be used as drill reinforcement or as independent instructional material. The whimsical pictures help to motivate students to learn through a variety of activities. These activities include tracing and writing, coloring, cutting and pasting, matching, and puzzles. Review pages are included, as well as an awards page at the end of the book for added motivation. In this book, students will learn about unusual consonant sounds and their spellings, and unusual vowel sounds (other than long and short). Therefore, the teacher may want to give more initial instruction before presenting some of the pages. Students will learn the more unusual sounds of vowels, exceptions, and also the diacritical markings for their sounds.
