I am excited to talk to you today about our Easy-for-Me™ Children’s Readers Set D! Kindergarten was great! Jax learned S says s-s-s-s and M says m-m-m-m and N says n-n-n-n and stuff like that.
This is Jax in 1st grade, learning that while s-s-s-s is spelled S, it can also be spelled C if it is followed by an E, an I, or a Y…at least sometimes. And here he is in 2nd grade finding that s-s-s-s can also be spelled S-C as in “scene” or S-T as in “castle.”
Oh. And here’s Jax discovering that M is spelled m-m-m-m (oh, sweet kindergarten) but it is also spelled M-N as in “hymn” and M-B as in “lamb. And the list of other consonants he thought he knew. Well, 8 more of them can be spelled in kindergarten UN-friendly ways.
How confusing! It helps kids like Jax when we teach basic sounds in kindergarten, but then teach all the ways to spell those 10 pesky consonants, so they won’t freak out or get discouraged.
Easy-for-Me™ Children’s Readers help clear up the confusion. Here’s what each set of Easy-for-Me™ Children’s Readers do:
Children’s Readers Set A teach all basic letter sounds and 59 essential sight words. They get children reading.
Children’s Reader’s Set B build on the skills learned in Set A, adding long vowel spelling patterns and 59 new sight words.
Children’s Readers Set C increase the complexity of the sound spellings to include R-controlled, diphthongs, and more. They also teach over 120 new sight words.
Set D goes back to the simple consonant sounds… (hello again, dear kindergarten!)
…and teaches all the ways to spell them!
There are F spellings, G spellings, and K spellings.
There are L spellings, M spellings, and N spellings.
There are R spellings, S spellings, T spellings, and Z spellings.
