Plus, each book has three different ways to learn! To make sure that your little learner is mastering sight words, this book has three separate sections to help your child learn to read:
• Step 1 - Read the Story - This section shows one dog photo with the featured sight word. This sight word is then used in a sentence.
• Step 2 - Practice the Flashcards! - After the story, use the separate "flashcard" section to practice the 20 new sight words which were introduced in the book! Perfect for beginning readers!
• Step 3 - Just the Story - Make sure your child hasn't simply memorized the story, by reading "Just the Story". This section has no pictures and is a great way to test your child's ability to read!
So what are sight words? Many of the most frequently used words in English are difficult to sound out and instead, need to be recognized on "sight" for a child to become a proficient reader. Sight words can be known by other names as well including High-frequency words, Dolch words (named after Edward William Dolch, PhD who first compiled the list in 1936), Fry words (named after Dr. Edward B. Fry's who updated the list in 1996), Instant words, Star Words and even Wall Words! New readers who practice these words regularly, become proficient readers!
