Teaching a child to read is one of the most important tasks a homeschool parent will ever face! Using the right tools makes the job much easier! As a part of the LIFEPAC 1st Grade Language Arts curriculum from Alpha Omega Publications, Reading Basics Book 1 was designed with your new reader in mind. Dog in the Tub, the first in a series of five readers, features easy-to-read stories that utilize mostly 1-syllable, short vowel words. Stories in this Alpha Omega curriculum gradually increase in length and difficulty. Short vowel words, -uff words, -all words, -ill words, -ell words, and words with ending consonant digraphs are covered in this popular reader.
Based on a systematic phonics approach, the Reading Basics Book 1 contains twenty-four high-interest stories sure to please any young reader! The inclusion of high-frequency words, which are also called sight words or instant words, increases the interest level of this great collection of stories. Since drilling of high-frequency sight words helps to increase fluency, this reader includes a list of instant words utilized within the stories. While this reader can be used independently, teaching instructions for incorporation into the LIFEPAC 1st Grade Language Arts homeschool program are detailed within the LIFEPAC 1st Grade Language Arts teacher's guides. Comprehension questions are also available in the Reading Basics Reader Study Guide.
