Guided Reading Word Family Books Short A Sound
Two free books out of over 100 photocopiable books.
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.
-Builds 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.”
