Level 2 - Exploring Sounds In Words
The newest version of Exploring Sounds In Words was uploaded in November, 2019. I've separated the pages into two workbooks again. These books have beginning and ending sound pages, large sound story pages, handwriting pages, silly sounds pages, put it together pages, and handwriting warm-up pages. These books are at the advanced readiness level. They will work well if started midway through the kindergarten year or at the beginning of first grade. The books teach/review the alphabet letters, their sounds, and their letter formation. Students write letters to show beginning and ending sounds for pictures. Students also learn to pronounce two-sound combinations, such as ab, ac, ad, af, ag, and ba, ca, da, fa, ga, called "silly sounds." While working through these books students will begin spelling short vowel words with plastic letters.

The first book below shows the previous version of Exploring Sounds In Words. All of the alphabet letters are studied in one book. It does not contain the large sound story pages or the handwriting pages. You will need to use a separate handwriting book, such as the Exploring Sounds In Words Manuscript Handwriting Book, shown below. The Picture Dictionary A-Z book can be used with any version of Exploring Sounds In Words. It contains illustrated word lists for the alphabet letters in which all of the words begin with the same sound. For many letters, there are also ending sound word lists.
The links shown below are for an earlier version of Exploring Sounds In Words. At the time, the books were called Advanced Learning The Alphabet.
