The Sticks Easy Read series of books come after the Sticks First Read series. These books are for those children who can recognize a few basic words. Sentences are still simple but the books are a bit longer (11 - 13 pages) than the Sticks First Read series.
More than 20 of these books are free on my website - My Books Buggy (www.mybooksbuggy.com).
The Sticks Easy Read Blends series set 1 is a set of 26 eBooks which are a great next step in the introduction of phonetics, after the Sticks A to Z series. The books feature 26 of the most common consonant blends with each book focusing on the sounds made by one blend. The consonant blends covered in this set are: bl, br, ch, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sh, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, soft th, hard th, tr, tw and wh. Blend sounds are represented many times on each page.
Printable books have many advantages - you can take as many copies of the books as you like and share them with other teachers/parents who may need them. All you need is a duplex colour printer (which can automatically print on both sides of the paper), A4 sheets and a stapler.
Detailed samples of each book are available on the My Books Buggy website, with ideas on how to use the printable files and step by step print instructions and tips.
