The sounds of consonants will stay neatly fixed in your children's minds after they read these short, funny stories in verse. The author is a teacher with over 25 years' experience in the primary classroom and in educational publishing. She presents rhymes to read aloud that reinforce correct pronunciation and improve recognition of the 21 consonants. For example, after children have sounded out the story and completed the exercises about Laura's eyelashes or Bob's bubble gum, they will readily remember the consonant sounds. Children can also make booklets to keep for review and practice. The author also provides lesson variations to make expanded use of the stories and exercises in Consonants.
