The brand new Oxford Phonics Spelling Dictionary is an easy home and school reference tool. It supports the teaching of reading and spelling through synthetic phonics. Supported by the Floppy's Phonics Sounds and Letters Programme, it follows the Alphabetic Code Chart showing the sounds andalternative spellings that children will need to learn to become proficient readers and spellers. The words are ordered by initial sound and there are subsections to show how the same sounds appear in the middle or at the end of a word.

There is additional phonics support material and audio on the Oxford Owl website, http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk.
