Take your child from no reading skills to the second grade level of reading! 20 step-by-step lessons are designed for parents of preschoolers who want to teach their children to read. A lesson introduction tells the parent what letter and skills are being covered; instructional pages feature illustrations or words for the child to read with small notes for the teacher where explanation or reinforcement is needed. Based on phonics, The Reading Lesson also combines key-word recognition and whole language elements. In every lesson, there are delightful stories that are simple, short and fun.
Each lesson teaches three to four sounds and introduces sight. Word recognition skills develop through the use of key words. Once these key words are learned using phonics, the child is encouraged to read them as sight words to gain fluency; the vocabulary of the program closely corresponds to the 500 most commonly used words in English.
