Much more than phonics

It's about more that learning English

Hello, I'm Yo-Yo the Snail!
Come with me
and follow the stars...
Play with English,
Laugh and sing in English,
Experience the taste of English,
Feel English on your skin,
Move through English.

Do it with Yo-yo Phonics!

Learning in spiral

Building on the identification of the principal sounds in English,
we learn how to form and read words.

Each sound is presented with an action and a jingle,
which help to recall the sound and letter (or letters) that represent it.

Little by little, Yo-yo Phonics helps children understand words and play with them.

How the letters and sounds

are organised

Learning the 44 principal sounds in English is the key
to understanding words in oral and written form.

Yo-yo Phonics STARS is composed of 7 Storybooks.

Storybook Starter: Essential preparation for younger learners. This Storybook builds children’s phonic awareness and vocabulary by exposing them to environmental sounds and words.
