Rich language and amusing illustrations combine with strategies that address how the brain remembers best: pattern, repetition, visual novelty, and multi-sensory experiences.
Children demonstrate six reading stages, from zero to five (print awareness to analysis and reasoning). This multi-level Reader serves stages zero to two: print awareness, sound and letter pairing, and automatic reading.
Use the Reader to read for pleasure; then teach the letter b; then teach or reinforce other sound/letter relationships, high-frequency words, new vocabulary, and writing.
Remember that stage two learners benefit from repeated experience with the same texts and materials, until reading is automatic.
Simple games with cut-out materials (all reusable) and activities are included within, to make the necessary repetition easy and fun. Look for Color & Trace Pages, Biscuit Bingo, Story Cards (for Matching, Story Train, Partners in Rhyme, and Story Challenge games), Letter Dress-Up Cards, and Sentence Builders!
