How to use

Learn to read series

  • Build a good habit by having your child point to each word(dots) 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.

  • Matching: Match transport toys to the pictures in the books!

  • General knowledge: Make the sounds of the transport
