Level 2 – Book 5
Sound English is a structured series of stories for people who are learning to read and spell in English. The series starts with the Preliminary books, which introduce essential sight words. From Level 1 onwards the text focuses on the phonemes (phonics) of Australian English. The Level 1 and Level 2 books have been structured to introduce the 44 phonemes (phonics) of Australian English.
Taken in numerical order, each book in Levels 1 and 2 introduces new phonemes, and reinforces both the phonemes and words used in earlier books (see table below). The text in Level 2 books is more complex than that used in Level 1. All books have detailed illustrations in full colour to assist with comprehension of the text. Each book includes extensive teaching notes and ideas to assist volunteer tutors.
The twenty books in Level 2 introduce the sounds (phonemes) and their spelling choices (graphemes) not covered in Level 1 (see below). Readers can continue to gain confidence by building upon words that were introduced in earlier stories.
Relevant topics The characters in Level 2 books include teenagers, families, workers and Indigenous people, along with refugees and other new arrivals to Australia. Topics include work-related issues including health and safety, and the need for training. Several stories focus on finding suitable accommodation. Others feature food, music, relationships and learning to drive. Humour, of course, is frequently present.
