Book 8a features Peter and Jane enjoying the summer in 91 new words, including ‘week’, ‘slow’, ‘clothes’ and ‘nothing’. Once this book has been completed, the child moves on to book 8b.
The Key Words with Peter and Jane books work because each of the key words is introduced gradually and repeated frequently. This builds confidence in children when they recognise these key words on sight (also known as the ‘look and say’ method of learning). Examples of key words are: the, one, two, he.
