Scholastic recently sent us BOB Books Sight Words for Kindergarten and Preschool and Zoe and Miles have both been enjoying it. You know when you sit down and work with your child and they just stare at you with glossed over eyes or they play with the string on your sweatshirt as you’re trying to teach them. You just feel like busting your head over the counter thinking to yourself they are not getting, they are not ready to learn it’s just not going to happen. I had one of those moments with Miles today, we were looking at these books and then I got side tracked (i’m a great example for him can you tell) and I wanted to teach him his ABC’s. I thought that would be a good place to start, well he did everything but pay attention.
Then tonight while we were playing with chalk he starts singing his ABC’s and he got pretty far before he started back over at A. So what I’m trying to say is don’t give up, teaching tools like these books do work. Zoe and I were looking at the words and spelling them out. She already recognizes all of the uppercase letters, we just need more work on lower case letters.
More About the Books
From the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program come two brand-new sets focused on learning and practicing Sight Words.
Sight Words are words that are recognized by sight rather than sounded out, in order to achieve reading fluency. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, and are often unable to be read phonetically (“was”, “are”, and “out” are examples). Bob Books Sight Words feature the top Sight Words in two sets – one for kindergarten and one for first grade – in order to allow parents and children to read, learn, and practice easily and enjoyably.
Each Sight Words box includes 10 original books, 30 flashcards, and a parent guide. Soon your child will be saying “I read the whole book!”®
