Nonsense illustrations enhance text and add effective visual prompts for reinforcing phonic content. Suitable for older students.
24 vowel digraph spellings are covered in a bank of resources using the limericks themselves, cloze passages, tracking and wordsearches.
A "memory-jogger" section repeats the pictures in smaller format along with the first line MINUS THE LAST WORD, to prompt memory of the key word and its spelling. If possible, students should be encouraged to learn the verses fully.
As well as being fun, this exposure to rhyme reinforces phonological awareness and is an aid to spelling. The cloze passage are repeated in a separate section with the gaps filled in and some simple comprehension questions, so they can be used for student self-checking, dictation or homework.
Suggestions are included for using the book.
