Reading with Buddies is a step-by-step beginning reading series that is designed to be used with a reading buddy(ies). Reading with Buddies is for the beginning reader who is learning to: identify and make sounds, blend sounds, read CVC words, and change initial sounds in CVC words. It is also designed for the struggling reader in first grade who needs a review of the basics in order to read independently.
This packet is unique in its comprehensiveness and planned repetition of producing consonant sounds and blending them with short vowel i word families to make CVC words. Extensive practice and repetition of blending onsets and rimes sets the stage for student success.
The packet is also unique because the chapters do not have to be completed consecutively. Students can simply pull out a chapter and begin reading with a buddy or buddies, parent, peer mentor, volunteer, grandparent, or favorite pet! (I secure each chapter together with a binder ring for ease of use). Both reading out loud and writing activities are included.
Buddy reading is an important step in a child’s beginning reading development in order to collaborate, learn, and have fun with others. What the student may not know, the buddy just might know! Together reading can grow successfully doing fun things together.
The activities are embedded in a fun winter themed packet and include:
a repeating jingle to get started
identifying a letter and its key word
saying the sound the letter makes
finger tracing the upper and lower case letter
sound blending a rime
sound blending an initial sound with a rime to form a CVC word
coloring a picture of the CVC word
comprehension activity with the CVC word
filling in the missing letter of the CVC word
blending new initial sounds with the rime to make new CVC words
writing the new CVC words
