Essential Sight Words Level 1 – Introductory Readers (Set of 8 books) (Learn to Read Books)

Kay de Silva

Price: FREE

Kay de Silva lays the foundation as a starting point to teach your kids how to read with graduated repetition throughout the series that consolidates learning and does not have to rely on the crutch of images. Imagine the surprise and delight to you and your child when they can recognize the words they are reading that convey the thoughts of the writer.

Essential Sight Words is a series of graded readers that will teach your child to read. As the very first book in this series, it introduces and reinforces many basic sight words found in everyday reading. This book comprises eight readers in one.

The scheme is based on the Dolch word list and additional sight words* which are regarded as the top 25 most commonly used words in contemporary English literature. These 25 words make up over one-third of all printed material. So a solid foundation in this comprehensive list is the best start to your child’s journey in language development.
Research shows that learning to read in context is more effective than any other method such as the use of flash cards. You will notice that the readers are written in contexts familiar to children. The ability to relate in this way captures the little reader’s interest.

Confidence is the essence of successful learning. So repetition is used judiciously to consolidate learning and build the reader’s confidence.
New words are highlighted as they are introduced. The book also includes a section on how the scheme is best used to make the most of your child’s reading experience.

Please note that this series of books are not ‘picture books’. They are based on a proven systematic approach to reading, where children are encouraged to concentrate on the letters and words, without the distraction of pictures. So the use of pictures is limited to the beginning of each reader when new nouns are introduced. In this way the young mind is allowed to remain focused. This is considered a more traditional approach and one of the best ways of learning to read. It will contribute to developing a solid reading foundation. Read more about this in the authors introduction to the book (freely available to read through the Amazon look inside feature).
