We are thrilled to welcome another nursery to our Song of Sounds family today! Stage 0 is aimed at FS1 nursery aged children and covers Letters and Sounds Phases 1 and 2. It introduces the sounds of the alphabet through fun, age-appropriate games and activities that take no more than 5–10 minutes a day. The teacher handbook is split into three clear sections: Part One: falls within the Communication and Language area of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. It focuses on developing children's speaking and listening skills and language comprehension through varied adult-led activities, rhymes, stories, poems and drama activities. Part Two: marks the beginning of explicit phonics teaching, in which the children, once they are ready, begin to learn their 26 letter sounds (phonemes). Part Three: is aimed at providing practitioners with ideas of how to implement phonics activities within the different areas of their setting. The Song of Sounds Stage 0 contains: Audio and Powerpoint versions of the song Teacher Handbook Flashcards Green word cards Phoneme stars Phoneme finder sheet Lotto game Pairs game Classroom frieze Picture cards Letter formation resources Stage 0 is now available as part of our subscription package.
