Creative songs from varying genres either teach to a vowel rule or bring a vowel character to life. These songs provide a fun and memorable way for your child to learn. The songs include the lyrics, vowel character drawings, guidewords, and vowel rules. Each song is introduced as it coincides with the new vowel sounds and rules presented in the lessons.
Your child will step through learning the vowel sounds and vowel rules found in three WHAT TO DO rules. The WHAT TO DO rules simulate the internal process any reader, at any age, should go through to correctly determine vowel sounds in words. The WHAT TO DO rules are presented in catchy, easy- to-remember songs. These and other vowel rules are first set to music and then visually transferred to Resource Charts that are repeatedly used throughout the program.
