The spelling and pronunciation of English words can be confusing. However, understanding the patterns of English can greatly assist in remembering correct spelling and pronunciation.

This book, ‘Rhyming Stories – language workbook’, contains spelling activities, crosswords and word-gap activities to be used in conjunction with the ‘Rhyming Stories: practice with the sounds and spelling of English’ storybook. As each story (in the storybook) has pictures and visual cues to demonstrate English sound/spelling correlations, it is suitable for all ages (school age to adult) and for a wide range of learning levels.

Each section of this workbook relates to a different story and therefore deals with and demonstrates the various sounds of English, building an understanding of the patterns of English spelling and pronunciation.

‘Rhyming Stories: practice with the sounds and spelling of English’ and ‘Rhyming Stories – language workbook’ will provide the most benefit when used with the accompanying audio CD.
