Songs for Literacy

Price (NZD): $35.00
The three CDs in this set scaffold the development of language, listening and phonological awareness skills in a careful sequence. 
CD 1 provides practice in general sound discrimination skills. Children learn to listen for and recognise:
• Sounds in the environment
• Instrumental sounds
• Sounds made by our bodies – body percussion

CD 2 provides practice in the recognition of sounds and sound patterns in words. Children learn to listen for and recognise:
• Rhythm – a precursor to learning to hear syllables in words
• Rhyme – rhyming songs encourage detection of rhyme, which can be extended to children producing other rhyming words
• Alliteration – children learn to recognise repeated sounds in words

CD 3 provides practice in producing and manipulating voice sounds by developing:
• Awareness of voice sounds and what it feels like to produce them
• Oral blending skills
• Oral segmenting skills
