Sidney Snake is one of our first Talking Books released and he loves to teach your child the speech sound “sss”. You think it is easssssssy ! Well it is if he shows you how. This talking story steps you through information that teaches how the speech sound is made using some of the key speech creating the articulators-such as the tongue, teeth, the breath and the voice. How can you start to help your child if you are not equipped with the basic knowledge about speech sound creation. It is just NOT TAUGHT in schools.
Our Talking Books are always brought to you in an entertaining and thoroughly unique way, as the script for the lesson is embedded in a fun story involving the Phonic All Star characters. Your child won’t even know they are learning!
The story goes…Sidney Snake is a secret spy posing as a our second hand salesman who glides and slides around on his scooter going from door to door selling second hand stuff. He presents as a little sinister and scary, but don’t be fooled, Sidney Snake has a secret which he has to share to you as the listener of his story. It may appear that –
- He is not to be trusted
- That he has sharp snake like teeth
- That he would eat a sabretooth tiger
- That he would even sell you your own heart beat
The truth is that he is on the search as a secret spy looking for people to join his S-CLUB secret sect. This is the CLUB which you need to secretly swear to…. OOOPS—I can’t reveal the secrets–otherwise it is not a secret club.
Sidney Snakes Talking Story book not only features the lesson and theory that teaches your child about correct speech productions of the sound /s/, the story also includes Sidney Snakes Soundtrack and lessons about concepts such as shape and size.
In a world where children are over stimulated for visual animation as a means for learning, it is not uncommon to see that children’s auditory skills can be weak. As children need to JUST listen, and are not stimulated via their visual modality. They then need to focus on what they hear. This can help to strengthen inner visualisation and imagination as they see the story come alive in their mind, not the pictures that are created on the screen. The Talking Audio books are great for children who need development for listening skill whether their challenges are due to:
- Inattention and failure to hold to the listener
- Weakness with learning words or vocabulary
- Weakness with auditory memory skills
- Weakness with comprehension of spoken information
