Welcome Friends from Cheshire Fitness Zone!
Stories and activities for little ones that help develop speech. The fun stories and adorable characters captivate the young readers while they practice important speech patterns.
What makes these stories different?
They are language-rich! We used our expertise to write stories that target common, early-developing language forms.
We targeted Vowels! Vowels are important for speech clarity so we repeat the targeted vowel, and we have provided an illustration that shows how to position the mouth to produce the vowel.
They rhyme! Rhyming helps children hear sound changes in words, improves phonological awareness, and helps children pay attention to the story.
Activities that go with the books! We've created many activities to reinforce the learning of the targeted vowel. Many of the vowel activities are fun poems and songs written to the tune of “Skip to My Lou”. Since it is a familiar tune, children can concentrate more on listening for the rhyming words.
We hope you enjoy!
