A Wolf Pup's Tale (A Beautifully Illustrated Children's Picture Book; Perfect Bedtime Story)

A Wolf Pup’s Tale (A Beautifully Illustrated Children’s Picture Book; Perfect Bedtime Story)

Rachel Yu

Price: FREE

I bought this on a whim for my 7-year-old daughter, because she loves anything with wolves or puppies. I was afraid it might be too young for her but figured what the heck. She LOVED it! She raved about how much she loved the pictures and how great the story was – then she read it again several more times. It’s one of her new favorites for killing time on my Kindle. I recommend it!

S. O’Donnell

This humorous, delightful story began as a writing assignment in Rachel’s 6th grade English class. Fast forward three years to the present, Rachel has transformed “Rugmo and the Other Side of the Fence,” to “A Wolf Pup’s Tale;” a beautifully illustrated, enchanting children’s book. It is a story about a young wolf pup, whose curiosity leads him to discovery, danger, and friendship.

Dolch Sight Words Flash Cards & Activities: Level 2 (Sight Words: Reading Comprehension)

Dolch Sight Words Flash Cards & Activities: Level 2 (Sight Words: Reading Comprehension)

Jon Haws

Price: FREE

A very good book about sight words. I think this is the most legit book I saw that features the Dolch Sight Words. My kids are learning the sight words and this is very helpful especially when we are out doing errands.

This book contains the second 52 words in the Dolch sight words list in both flash card method as well as sight word games. In all there are 220 words on the Dolch sight words list. These words are intended for brand new learners. As your child progresses through the book they will grow in their reading comprehension and confidence. The games are designed to help the child further understand and recognize the words that they are learning. These words are intended for Kindergarten aged children.

The sight word method was developed and made infamous by Edward William Dolch PhD when he published his book, “Problems in Reading”. He compiled a list of 220 words that are most commonly used in the English language and which he felt must be mastered in order to understand reach a proficient level of reading in the English language. Your child will love the words, games, and pictures as they flip through the flashcards and games. Over 50 pages of worksheets, flashcards, and games to keep your child both entertained and teach them at the same time!

These words are often called sight words because unlike many words these 220 words cannot be sounded out and therefore must be learned via sight. These words are utilized in many educational settings to assist language learners in mastering reading skills. There are five levels of words divided up into grade levels:

  • Pre-School
  • Kindergarten
  • First Grade
  • Second Grade
  • Third Grade

With each successive level the words become more difficult and the words associated with each list are those most often used in the coinciding reading level.

The idea is that these are high frequency words in the English language that are not as easy to read phonetically. Thus, learning them by sight improves the child’s chances of success in reading. We believe that using sight word books and sight word worksheets is a fantastic method for helping your child achieve that success they deserve. In fact, these methods are used to teach ESL students and new language learners.

The Dolch sight words were later expanded by Fry who developed the Fry word list and Fry sight words which are similar to the Dolch words. Being able to quickly read through the Dolch sight word list will place your child or student at a great advantage on spelling, reading, and other tests.
