Start! is an exciting, new Pre-Reading/Pre-Writing Workbook for Junior Infants.
Regardless of the reading programme used in your school, this independent workbook will provide a structured plan to cater for the pre-reading and pre-writing needs of your children.
This book incorporates all the elements of the pre-reading/pre-writing programme: Language, Visual Discrimination, Left-Right Orientation, Auditory Discrimination and Pattern work.
Start! uses a themed approach, with nursery rhymes/songs as the main focus. Nursery rhymes are not just for fun but have enormous educational value. It is crucial that young children learn to memorise through verse. We cannot overestimate the importance of rhyme before the child begins the formal reading process.
I hope that Start!, as the name implies, will provide your children with the necessary stepping stone to the world of reading and writing.
