Teaching Literacy in African Classrooms with Fantastic Phonics
|Fantastic Phonics is simple, with short sentences which rhyme, and have comical situations. In the video, you can see how the teacher has developed a class engagement process - while one child says the featured sentence, the whole class joins and repeats.|
You can also see that Fantastic Phonics is independent of technology. The stories have been printed using low-cost processes, and bundled together to form a solid, well-thumbed book.
