This story is written with a focus on using ee vowel words. This allows the struggling and/or beginning reader to build specific skills without needing to rely on sight words and multiple vowel patterns at the same time. Giving the reader similar patterns and decodable text in one story allows for reading a fun book where learning takes place and frustration is low, thus increasing reading confidence and success.
This book includes a pre-reading activity of real and nonsense ee words for reading practice
Have students read and re-read the real and nonsense words before reading the book. Read and re-read both the words and the book for practice in increasing reading fluency and reading skills.
