This new edition of the Oxford Phonics Spelling Dictionary is an easy home and school reference tool.
With words ordered by their initial phonic sound and colourful illustrations of familiar Oxford Reading Tree characters, it helps children using synthetic phonics and prepare for the screening check. Supported by the Floppy’s Phonics Sounds and Letters Programme, it follows the Alphabetic Code Chart of sounds and alternative spellings that children learn at school. There are subsections to show how the same sounds appear in the middle or at the end of a word and a separate section of the long vowel sounds and their alternative spellings.
With this dictionary, it easy to explain how ‘sun’ and ‘Cinderella’ both start with the ‘s’ sound and how ‘dance’ has the same ‘s’ sound at the end, while ‘egg’ and ‘eat’ start with the same letter but different sounds.
