For any reader, at any level. Establish the foundation of learning to read: learning that words are made of strings of sounds. Via: "slow-talk" words, which are said slowly with emphasis on each sound. Think of it like as version of "sounding out the word." The student's job is to make the connection that the words they know can be broken down into individual sounds.

This download provides 10 pages of example-slow talk words, written in our patented two-stack method, in which English spelling is subtitled by special sound pictures that stand for the first sound in their names.

This exercise is the first in an upcoming series. To learn more about the NewRead method, visit www.NewRead.co and for more practice and activities, download our three free apps for the iPad.
