Word Queen: Teaching kids to read, one trick at a time! Right here in this very town there used to be a Word Queen! She wanted to be the only one in the kingdom to know how to read so she put tricks in words so that no one else would be able to!
Book ONE contains instructions for introducing the Word Queen to the class (finding her Treasure Chest) along with over 300 sight words taken from the Dolch Sight Word list and lists of Most Commonly Used Words.
Books TWO, THREE, and FOUR contain stories and activities that introduce the TRICKS (digraphs, diphthongs, silent-e, r-controlled vowels, etc.) The Word Queen leaves notes for the children warning them NOT to learn her tricks! Teachers say, “The kids are so excited, they don’t even realize they are learning!”
