About Set D
Closed caption transcript
“Kindergarten was great! Jax learned S says s-s-s—s and M says m-m-m-m, 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, and I, or a Y… at least sometimes.
“And here he is in 2nd grade finding that s-s-s-s can also be spelled SC as in SCENE or ST 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 these ways: MN as in HYMN and MB 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 Readers do:
