Note to parents, careers and teachers
Read it yourself is a series of modern stories, favourite characters and traditional tales written in a simple way for children who are learning to read. The books can be read independently or as part of a guided reading session. Each book is carefully structured to include many high-frequency words vital for first reading.The sentences on each page are supported closely by pictures to help with understanding , and to offer lively details to talk about.The books are graded into four levels that progressively introduce wider vocabulary and longer stories as a reader's ability and confidence growa.
Ideas for use
- Begin by looking through the book and talking about the pictures.Has your child heard this story before?
- Help your child with any words he does not know,either by helping him to sound them out or supplying them yourself.
- Developing readers can be concentrating so hard on the words that they sometimes don't fully grasp the meaning of what they're reading. Answering the puzzle questions on pages 30 and 31 will help with understanding.
