Key Words with Peter and Jane (3a) Things We Like

by W. Murray Author

"Key Words with Peter and Jane" uses the most frequently met words in the English language as a starting point for learning to read successfully and confidently. The Key Words reading scheme is scientifically researched and world renowned. In book 3a, Peter and Jane have fun doing things they like in 36 new words including 'me', 'tea', 'bed' and 'give'. Once this book has been completed, the child moves on to book 3b. "The Key Words with Peter and Jane Books" work because each of the key words is introduced gradually and repeated frequently. This builds confidence in children when they recognize these key words on sight (also known as the 'look and say' method of learning). Examples of key words are: the, one, two, he. There are 12 levels, each with 3 books: a, b, and c. "Series a" gradually introduces new words. "Series b" provides further practise of words featured in "The 'a' Series". "Series c" links reading with writing and phonics. All the words that have been introduced in each 'a' and 'b' book are also reinforced in the 'c' books.
