About Story Based Learning

Humans have been using stories to teach their youngsters about life since day dot. Everyone loves a story but it can quite hard to find them with any depth to explicitly teach spelling, which can make spelling rather boring! Our purpose written phonics picture book stories are full of words showing how sounds in words are spelled in many ways and bring spelling and grammar to life. Check out our store for a range of activities based on our original picture books and add life and colour to your spelling and grammar lessons.
