Your Child is Almost Ready for Books!
Sentences are the building blocks of books. Therefore, it's wise to give attention to the reading of sentences. Helping your child practice and master reading sentences will help them be successful and confident when they get to decodable readers that can have many sentences on each page.
It's important to train your child with games, activities and lessons that focus on practicing sentence reading before they jump into reading books. Many reading programs on the market miss this crucial step. At this stage, if your child will need to have mastered the five previous steps: word decoding, phoneme segmenting, phoneme blending, the alphabetic principle and phonemic awareness. If you haven't been following these steps, there's a chance your child has some gaps in their reading skills that will need to be filled in. Thankfully, we have a great reading mastery checklist. You can give your child a simple test to determine exactly where their weaknesses are and then make use of our fun and easy reading games and lessons to fill in those missing skills. Our sentence reading games and lessons are a natural progression from our word reading games. With phoneme blending your child learned how to string sounds together to make words.
