Practice makes perfect in just 10 minutes a day!
There is nothing more important than your child's education, but sometimes it's difficult to find the time to fit everything in. From DK's best-selling "Made Easy" home-learning workbooks, the 10 Minutes a Day series fits in around busy lives.
Aimed at ages 5-6, 10 Minutes a Day: Phonics supports your child as they develop their first English skills in connecting sounds with their letters: identifying first-letter sounds in words, listening for middle- and end-letter sounds, writing the letters of the alphabet, making rhyming strings of words, and showing children how to connect letter sounds to make simple three-letter words.
Each exercise is simply and clearly introduced and uses a variety of interesting methods to help learning, from matching exercises to learning how to pronounce and spell out new sounds and words, based on themes that a young child can easily relate to, such as food, animals, and household objects. For the eager student, there are extra "time filler" challenges on every page if they finish the questions within 10 minutes and want to continue practicing, or just want ideas for additional activities to do at home.
Answers are provided, along with parents' notes that explain what your child learns from the exercise.
