Edna and Edward the elves, climbed up the highest of shelves. They came upon a treasure; They said, "What a pleasure!" and kept everything for themselves. You'll be laughing and loving to practice pronunciation with the sixteen limericks that start each unit in this book! Each limerick focuses on the sound and spellings of one of the 16 vowel sounds of English. The limerick also offers excellent practice with stress, reduction, linking, intonation, and rhythm. The 16 units offer lively and entertaining work in all skill areas through the following activities: an illustrated limerick, spelling patterns, comparing sounds, vowel hunt, combining words to form sentences, vocabulary, reading stories, answering questions, listening to the music of the limerick, exploring expressions, writing short letters to the characters, and finally, a humorous homonym such as What did the rich rabbit buy? (A caret).
