Did you know that 87% of all of the text in the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham is made up of Dolch high frequency words?
Our book, Picture Me Reading My Favorite Storybooks, gives step-by-step guidance for helping your child read using Picture Me Reading Sight Word Cards and your child’s favourite storybooks. We provide instruction for teaching high frequency words using nine popular children’s books by Dr. Seuss (Theo. LeSieg,) P.D. Eastman, Robert Lopshire and Mike McClintock.
Picture Me Reading My Favorite Storybooks also includes detailed suggestions for phonics lessons using these storybooks, to help your child with the important task of learning to decode words. All of these ideas can be adapted to any storybook on your shelf.
When children hooked on phonics programs have just learned to read, “A fat cat sat on a mat.” or “A big pig did a jig.” your child will be reading “real” books with confidence and comprehension.
