Easy-for-Me Children's Readers Set A focuses strongly on how to teach vowel sounds in their most simple form. Many children who struggle with reading have trouble distinguishing between vowel sounds, so in Set A the focus is on developing the child's ability to hear the difference between vowels in words. Easy-for-Me Children's Readers Sets B & C lead you through how to teach more complex vowel spellings beginning with long vowel sound spellings.
After reading each story, use the provided comprehension questions to help the child focus on the content of what they are reading.
Rather than focusing only on sounding out words, strong focus on comprehension helps promote success.
Easy-for-Me™ Children's Readers are designed to be read in sequence, as the skills used in each build on each other and gradually increase in difficulty. These sets of Children’s Readers teach all needed skills explicitly so that there are no gaps in what the children know. Best of all, once children learn to recognize sound spellings and sight words instantly, they will have the tools to decode longer, more difficult words.
Easy-for-Me decodable/sight word Children's Readers are perfect for providing reading practice after children learn sounds using Alphabet cards and sight word vocabulary using SnapWords® cards.
Learning SnapWords® before reading text will promote fluency and comprehension.
