What Comes Before Phonics by Neaum Sally
The teaching of phonics is now strongly embedded in early literacy teaching in schools and early years settings and it has been shown to be an important part of becoming literate. There is however significant concern about the formalising of phonics teaching for very young children. So what should we be focusing on in early years? What comes before this formal teaching? This book explores a range of aspects of young children's learning that lead into literacy and includes practical advice on how to translate this into practice.
