This prereading pack is the fifth lesson of Book 5
from the Newitt Beginning Reading and Writing Program. The program provides a fundamental yet integrated approach to reading, writing, listening, and speaking the English language. The standards-based series of 24 books guides novice learners through a full year curriculum. Each lesson discovers, connects, and practices the basics of English.
A key feature of the program is that it uses linear incremental steps and repeated practices linked to higher level thinking skills. This approach gives the learner a solid foundation of reading and writing experiences. In the process, the learner gains routine study habits, motivation to learn, confidence, and mastery.
Please print the lesson double-sided and then cut in half, so that each page is 5 1/2” by 8 1/2”. Each lesson has 24 sides.
This lesson connects to "Identify Actions & Locations: Lesson 5, Book 6 (Newitt Prereading Series)"
. The companion lesson uses the rhyming words in sentences.

“Great program that allows students to understand what words mean and how they relate to a story. Gradually moves from individual words, to sentences and finally to reading comprehension. More than a ‘how to read’ program, but instead a ‘learn to understand what reading is’ program.”
