Foundations in Phonics Phase 1 Books

Foundations in Phonics books are specifically designed for children to develop an awareness of early reading and phonics teaching. The books introduce them to the Monster Phonics programme where they can meet the monsters and engage in a fun way independently or with a grown up. We’ve designed these phase 1 books, so each child’s love of reading is supported, by including a set of instructions at the start of each book for parents and teachers to use as a guide too.The set includes 20 phase 1 books and 10 'Meet the Monster' books. Ideal for both Nursery and Reception children.

20 Wordless Phase 1 Books

  • Cover the 7 aspects of phase 1
  • Develop an early understanding of book structure and narrative
  • Use actions to build vocabulary
  • Develop listening skills
  • Support parents in using wordless books and provides optional adult text that can be used in shared reading

Each book is a larger A4 size, perfect for younger readers.

Introduce the Monsters to your class with this set of 10 A4-sized books designed to be read by an adult.

The monster characters accelerate learning to read as they represent sounds and the graphemes which spell those sounds. Each book describes the life of the monster, their sound and the actions that they make.
