The Language Contract

Present students with a Language Contract they will be itching to fulfil. A key strength of this series is its diversity of learning strategies to stimulate the learning of initial blend and digraph sounds. Each week students complete a structured sequence of activities focused on the target sounds as set out in their language contract. A focus on constructive outcomes, combined with its accessibility and convenience, means this resource contains the elements needed to satisfy teacher and learners alike.

Ages: 6-8 years
