Stories about a fake cake, a bike ride, a tree house, a wise bride, a trick mule, and a rude dude. What do they have in common? They are a fun way for your 4-8 year old to learn about one syllable words with silent e. This book introduces the sound patterns of vowel, consonant, silent e, with color coding. It also uses the ee pattern, which is also very common. This vocabulary focuses on decodable words with rhyming patterns so your child can build skills in a gradual manner. These stories are built on the vocabulary from other books by Jane Wilson. By the time your child has read these books, she will also have had practice with over half of the 300 most commonly used printed words (These 300 words make up about 65% of all written material in English.) There are lots of activities for parent–child interaction, internet searches, active games, and craft ideas. Characters model how to deal with rudeness, show patience, resolve conflicts and make the best of difficult circumstances. Parent notes include comprehension tips, ways to help your child learn the long vowel sounds, plus other literary skills all in the context of fun stories, games, and activities. These books are also great for struggling readers of all ages. Enjoy this opportunity to give your child the gift of reading!
