This eBook contains key words from the The Reading Lesson book. It is meant to be a supplement to that book. The key words in The Reading Lesson form the basis of elementary reading. Some times lists of such words are called the Dolch words, although our list is somewhat different. As important as learning to sound out is, the reading speed and fluency will come quickly if these words are learned well.
There are two pages per lesson in this book. The first page contains the key words your child has already learned by sounding them out. On the next page, we offer some big and scary words for your child. We do not expect your child to be able to read these words. The purpose here is to introduce them to real words, besides the controlled set used in the Reading Lesson book.
After doing the lesson in the book, this eBook can be used to reinforce the key words learned. Go this eBook, ask child to try to first read the key words from the lesson. Then we go to the next and scary page with big words. Now ask your child to just sound the first letter, or any other that are highlighted. He or she just needs to pay attention to the highlighted letter. This should be easy. Now read this big word to her. Then ask child to repeat the word after you. Don't make them recognize it! No need for that. We want your child to see that eventually they will indeed be able to read the big and scary words like these, if they know the sounds.
We recommend that the child also practice hand writing along with the Reading Lesson course. Please consider purchasing our Teach Me Handwriting ebook that closely follows the Reading Lesson and, allows printing of the pages as needed.
You may also consider our animated and interactive program, Giggle Bunny’s Reading Lesson which will make learning to read fun for your child.
