Early Years and KS1/KS2
Here's what the testers said: "Gorgeous, good quality books! Great for all children, especially those with speech or language difficulties."
"The repetitiveness really helped the children to learn and then remember the words. They especially enjoyed listening to the stories and reading the books for themselves. A big thumbs-up from us."
This is what the testers said: "A specialist set of books that are very original. The children liked the stories; they were fun to read.
They were great for encouraging sound awareness and the children very quickly joined in with repeating the sounds. We thought the adventurous word choice was great and really extended the children's vocabulary."
What's special about Clickety Books?
Clickety Books are have been designed to develop ALL children’s speech sound awareness, an essential building block for both clear speech and early literacy development. Just listening to the stories can help children develop their knowledge of speech sounds and how they combine in words and joining in the chorus will also give them plenty of practice saying the sounds.
They can also be used as part of a support programme for any child presenting with speech, language or early literacy difficulties.
Children who have speech intelligibility difficulties when they start school are likely to experience difficulties learning to read and spell. Success in early decoding and spelling is dependent on the ability to segment words into their constituent sounds which, in turn, depends on the ability to ‘hear’ the difference between sounds and recognise the same sound when they hear it spoken in different words.
The books and accompanying resources can also be used to promote children’s listening and attention and other language skills. Have a look at the Clickety Books here and download FREE Clickety resources here.
