Each story comes with four accompanying activities, exploring everything from phonic sounds and story recall, to building words and sentences with keywords from the books.
Story Sounds – Listen to the letter sounds introduced
Listen & Spell – Hear individual words and spell them out using the letter sounds
Building Words – Listen to and build key words
