STEP 10: Sentence Reading Cards
$4.95 – $44.95
by Preschool University
13 sets, each with 12-30 sentence cards.
These sentence reading cards are the missing link for children reading mastery. Most programs go from reading words to reading books, they don’t give children experience practicing reading words together apart from a book. These cards are a breakthrough approach to helping children read effectively, gradually helping string words together to make sentences.
Just like words are made of letters, sentences are made of words. Children are first taught the sounds of letters and how to put them together to make words. So too, must children be given practice of stringing words together to make sentences before they are taught to string sentences together to make paragraphs. Sentence reading cards gradually increase in difficulty to help children master the skill of sentence reading.
All of the previous sets of reading cards in this series are like little books indirectly preparing your child for successful book reading. These sentence cards take this one step further by providing sentences for your child to read in a mini book format. They are in a sequential series of sets that take your child from reading 2-3 word sentence fragments to short 3-6 word sentences then finally onto multiple sentences. This series starts with 3-letter phonetic words and moves through 4-letter blends, longer phonetic words and then uses silent final e words.
Your child can delight in reading these booklets and can exclaim, “I can read books!”
Careful attention has been paid to ensure that only words that are strictly phonetic are used with these sets. It’s important to keep the learning experience short and fun so that your child is happily interested and engaged. Going through one set once a day should be the right starting pace for using these sentence cards. Enjoy and Happy Learning!
