Now Featuring Products that Support Working with Word Sounds, Rhythms, Rhymes, and Playacting!
This month, we will feature a different book, book set or collection each week and tell you a little more about it. This week, we are highlighting our books and products that support working with word sounds, rhythms, rhymes, and playacting.
Rhymes and Songs Set
This new set of six favorite songs and poems includes familiar favorites like Ten Little Monkeys, The Wheels on the Bus, and I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. Each of the six books in this set comprise rich, bold and inviting illustrations paired with familiar rhymes that will build oral language and improve the ability to hear and distinguish sounds. These books are published in a 9"x9" lap book format ideal for shared reading. Visit our website to see all six of these delightful books.
Favorite Nursery Rhymes
The Cat and the Fiddle and Other Favorite Nursery Rhymes is a treasure trove of over two dozen favorite Mother Goose rhymes, each paired with enchanting illustrations. Each rhyme can be matched with a new activity to keep students enthusiastic about learning. For example, "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" and "Pat-a-Cake" will be just right for finger play; while "Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son" and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" are great fun for name games as you substitute each student's name to 'star' in the rhyme. Leaf through the pages and plan your own fun activities with this delightful 9"x9" lap book.
As students advance, the opportunity to read a story and then practice the language and patterns by performing a play are an ideal way to reinforce language development and fluency. Our Readers' Theatre sets encourage students to extend their reading first with playacting and then with a nonfiction piece, included in each book. Favorite characters come alive in these sets. Pioneer Valley Books offers four wonderful sets of Readers' Theatre books, with four books in each set.
Our Readers' Theatre Bundle includes all 16 of the Readers' Theatre books plus finger puppets and/or plush companions to extend the playacting.
