Sam has almost mastered her sight word flash cards. So why is she still having trouble reading a book? Well, because not all the words in the book were included in her flash cards. Leaving Sammy to be almost able to read an entire book.
Today, I tried to fix that problem for her. I made her some sight word flash cards based on her “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” Dr. Seuss book.
This plan worked great in reverse. Sam finally caught on to reading the word “would” and “could” by my constant reminders that it was in her “Green Eggs and Ham” book. She was so excited when she could finally read the entire book on her own. Seeing her struggle with “One Fish” today was sad. So I’m off to print her cards… help her learn the words that are in the book. Then she can proudly say
“I can read TWO books all by myself!!”
