Guided Reading Word Family Booklets Short A
This borrow a book program allows children to gradually build their base words. With repeated exposure to essential sound families, children will experience success in their reading. The program is designed to slowly introduce phonetic word families, also known as sound families, to readers. Each new level uses previously learned words, so that readers are continuously practicing what they learn over and over again. As reading mastery occurs, it slowly introduces new sounds. This phonetic repetition is essential for spelling success, as it provides a bank of sounds for the speller to refer to while they begin their writing journey.
By providing all new sentences and fun rhymes, readers enjoy typing in their answers.
-Build words very slowly. New phonetic sounds are introduced and then repeated in many new sentences.
-Simple graphics. The graphics do not help the children figure out the text or detract from their “Reading Eyes.”
The booklets are designed for readers from Kindergarten to grade 2.
The Lessons numbers refer to the new word families that are introduced.
