This prereading pack is the tenth and final lesson of Book 3
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 expands and builds comprehension of vocabulary introduced in Separate Words in Sentences: Lesson 10, Book 1 (Newitt Prereading Series)

“We use the Newitt Learning reading program at our clinics. All ability levels have responded positively to instruction from these books. Not only are the children learning, but they are having fun while doing so. We highly recommend the books for all children, including those with autism or other learning disabilities.”
