The user-friendly, classroom tested materials that accompany Coconut Moon make it a favourite for teachers and parents working one-on-one or in class, with beginning or developing readers and writers of English.
 

For primary grades, Special Education students, ESL, Home Schooling, and adults learning English.
 

Kids and adults alike love the catchy melodies, approachable lyrics, and wacky themes in Coconut Moon. They want to hear it over and over again, making it prime material for teaching reading and writing. All ages find the vocabulary and songs accessible and fun. 

   

The package includes 3 teacher booklets: 

   Lyrics: Students can easily learn to read with the easy, fun, large-print words. They rapidly learn the carefully constructed lyrics, and then begin to recognize the printed words as they point and sing along. Students are provided with a framework of "safe, easy" beginning sight words, while being introduced to multi-syllable, enriched vocabulary. 

  Cloze Passages: Students practice decoding, comprehension, writing, parts of language, problem solving, and creativity with beginning and advanced cloze passages of the lyrics.

  Writing: Students develop their writing skills with dozens of activities that accompany each song, including posters, labels, diagrams, letters, recipes, lists debates, poems, stories, labels, brochures, etc.
