How to use

Learn to read series

  • Build a good habit by having your child point to each word as he/she reads- This helps with attending!

  • Verbally prompt your child to read the target sight words on the first 3 to 4 pages. On the following page, pause and allow your child some time to read the target word on his own.

  • If he is able to read the target words, praise, praise, praise! Allow him to read independently for the rest of the book.

  • If he still struggles, it’s ok! Continue prompting a few more times, and pause and allow for him to read on his own again.

Teaching tips

  • Practice makes perfect! It is ok to have your child read the same book over and over again. Repetition helps with learning!

  • Get your child to point to different sight words to see if he/she can identify the words receptively (e.g. point to ‘is’; point to ‘the’)

  • Once he has learnt to read a word, practice reading the same target words in different books, texts, worksheets, etc.


Embed more learning opportunities

  • Use real objects to help your child develop a deeper association between the senses and the object.

  • Create a sensory bin. Mix different objects into a big tub. Get your child to say out what he feels/smell/touch/hears/taste as he explores the various objects.
