Dancing Bears Book B

ISBN 9781905174348

This book is printed-on-demand in the USA.

Dancing Bears Book B contains similar exercises to Dancing Bears Book A. Words with suffixes—ing, ly, ed, er, en—are taught, preparing pupils for the morphemic approach to decoding multi-syllable words that has made our Word Builder exercises such a tremendous success. Split digraph (magic 'e') words are introduced in this book. Dyslexic pupils often have a lot of trouble with silent 'e', so this gets a lot of practice and review. Soft 'c' and soft 'g' at the ends of words (nice, page) are taught and other new patterns include less-common digraphs and trigraphs (ur, aw, tch, dge), and three-letter consonant blends (str, spl). Ambiguous digraphs (ea, oo) are introduced along with a large range of irregular spelling patterns in the cloze sentences. With our unique Word Builders, pupils lose their fear of long words and reading them in context of helps to teach the meanings. The serial story continues with longer episodes in this book.

Dancing Bears Book C

ISBN 9781905174355

This book is printed-on-demand in the USA.

This is the level where reading ability really starts to take off. Difficult -re endings, as in future, entire, and compare are taught, along with the common -ion and -le endings. One pattern which can cause a lot of problems is when the silent ‘e’ is dropped in words like hoping, pupils often forget that the vowel is still long; so they will read hopping instead. Dancing Bears Book C contains plenty of exercises which make this pattern easy.

Words beginning with soft c (central, circle) and soft g (gentle, gypsy) are introduced, patterns introduced in Books A and B are constantly revisited to make sure they are not forgotten. The y to i rule (copy, copies) is taught and words starting with ph and hard ch (photo, chemist) are introduced.

At this level, the cloze sentences and Wordbuilders are an important aid to building vocabulary. The serial story continues to its happy conclusion.

Pupils learn the correct use of the apostrophe for contractions and possessives at this level. Split digraph or magic 'e' spellings are also taught. Apples and Pears B extends the morphemic strategy, teaching the pupil why we drop the 'e' from 'hope' when we write 'hoping', but not when we write 'hopeless'. It also covers the doubling rule, explaining why we double the 'r' in 'starring', but not in 'starless'.

Starting at this level is not recommended. However, for older pupils it is very important to carry on with Book D because the number of words the pupil can spell increases enormously. At this stage, the pupil will progress very rapidly, the continued use of the morphemic strategy will enable the pupil to remember new spellings much more easily.

Handwriting Tracing Sheets
Handwriting Tracing Sheets
Use our Sound Foundation Handwriting Tracing Sheets for handwriting practice and improvement. All of these practice sheets involve tracing. Children enjoy tracing, because they can't get it wrong. Using these sheets for five minutes each day should produce a marked improvement in writing. You may photocopy sheets as often as necessary so children get plenty of practice. When children can form letters without conscious effort, they have much more attention to give to correct spelling and the content of their writing.
