Goat & Toad Float on a Boat, new Phonics “oa” story


After the “igh” story last time (and the great feedback!)  today we have a brand new phonics story for the “oa” grapheme.

As usual we have the poster version for use by the teacher at the front of the class and the landscape workbook version where the kids can write the story so you can check their comprehension.

The Phonics Course is now up to 120 pages and you can find them over on the Genki Phonics page.

Ninja Tip:  If you’re wanting to print just the new stories you can find them on pages 63, 65, 120 & 121 of the posters and pages 70 & 72 of the workbook.

And do let us know in the comments if you’d like us to continue making stories for the rest of the phonemes!

P.S.  Yes this image is the story “cover”  the actual story uses the regular “a” symbol 🙂

    Errr…. didn’t you write them? 🙂

    Great timing!

    I have just started teaching phonics, and totally forgot about the short stories 😀

    keep up the good work!

  3. Trevor

    The first line of the second paragraph is missing an “a”, but good job, please keep adding stories for all the phonemes.

    I hate to keep bringing this up, but it would be really nice to have the phonics program with the same font as these stories…

  5. Martin (mjwenzel)

    Great. Yes, keep them coming if at all possible. Nice to have a story included straight away. Makes life just that much easier for the parents, students, and teachers. Thanks for your hardwork!

  6. Martin (mjwenzel)

    Ah, but one mistake, I think. “A goat in coat!” shouldn’t it be “A goat in a coat!” The next line is “A toad in a coat!” Forgot that “a”!

    Where can I find the Goat and Toad story?

  8. Richard

    Ahhh…. thanks Trevor & Martin for picking up the mistake – I’ll start on a fix now!

    @Gumby: It’s the same font for the stories as the phonics programme at the moment, they’re all Sassoon!

    Thanks for the patience everyone, the (hopefully!) corrected versions are up now.

    You can find them on Page 65 of the Posters book and page 72 of the workbook, and both of those you can find on the main Phonics Page: http://GenkiPhonics.com

    (Just hit the refresh key on your browser if it doesn’t show the corrected version.)

    As always a huge THANK YOU!!! for spotting the mistakes – it’s amazing how many times you can look at something and never spot things like this! 🙂

    Very nice guys! Thank you so much for these amazing stories. I did try to create some myself but it’s just incredibly difficult. you guys are amazing! 🙂

    Ditto. It is hard to come up with a fun story using only the letters learned. It is hard just to think up fun words off the top of your head to have the kids spell.

  12. Elvira

    Great! BTW how do you teach them? Is there a special method?

  13. Richard

    @Elvira: You just use them as extra reading practice for the “reading” section of the posters. I’ll try and get a video made at my next workshop for you!

  14. Mhari Sak

    Yes please, please, please keep writing them! My students get really sad when there aren’t any stories. It’s also great practice using the new phenomes.
