Phonological zoo is a program designed to enhance the phonological awareness of children in early stages of reading . The program has many different important topics including basic elements of nursery rhymes, rhyming, alliteration, segmentation, and sound/symbol relationships.There are three phases to the program which are lead by three engaging characters: Funny Bunny, Sally the Spider and Cameron the Camel.Phase 1=nursery rhymes and folk tales- understanding the basic elements of nursery rhymes/folk tales such as being able to recognize setting and characters and events of the story. It also emphasis multiple ways to tell a nursey rhyme such as felt board or through memoryPhase- 2- Rhyming – trying to have them recognize and produce rhyming wordsPhases three- segmentation and sound/symbol relationship- can you recognize alliteration, sounds of different letters and patterns in wordsPhonological zoo is created for pre reading. It is most often used in grade k-1. Developmental ability does not seem to be barrier that needs to be over come. This program is set up to incorporate large group, small group and on an individual level. This program is taken very slowly through out the year. 2 lessons are presented a week. This would allow for extra one on one time with a child that may need extra help. It is not that expensive when you think of how much you are really getting out of the program. It is roughly 150 dollars per phases however you are engaging the children is something that is interesting to them and yet they do not really understand how much they are learning. 150 dollars to me is definatly worth it when you think about how much your students will gain from this series.

Phonological zoo picks quality literature chosen to specific phonological features.
