The Complete Reading Made Easy 1
This ebook is for your personal use. Thank you for respecting the hard work of this author.
Thank you for choosing the Reading Made Easy series. It has grown out of more than six years of research and experience in teaching phonics and literacy to beginning readers and pre-readers.
In order for your beginning reader to get the most from this series, it is important that they have a firm grasp of the common letter sounds, and that they are able to blend at least three common sounds to make a coherent word.
What does this mean? Quite simply, they should first know, for example, that the letter /r/ ‘makes’ the ‘rrr’ sound and so forth. Secondly, if you ask them “what word does ‘rrrr’ ‘aaaa’ ‘tuh’ make?” they should be able to tell you ‘rat’ without too much difficulty or guessing. If your child is not yet able to demonstrate these abilities, a good phonics program is in order before attempting these Silly Stories.
