Book One of the How to Read books is a "reader" of sorts for very beginning readers. 50 of the first "Fry" words as well as the acclaimed Dolch word lists used as a benchmark for children in the public school setting are included.
A great resource for preschool kids who are ready to read or homeschooling families with children who have a desire to begin reading. Knowledge of most letters of the English alphabet and their corresponding sounds should be known before beginning these lessons.
Each day the student engages in a new lesson, only one new page a day, with review of previous lessons before if desired/needed.
Enjoy watching your student take off into the exciting world of reading!
