Before beginning to read the book we discuss the title and make predictions about what this book might be about. We cover a number of print concepts as well.
We read this book a few pages at a time mastering the sight words. The plot and illustrations keeps Janessa wanting to read more. Which keeps this girl motivated to learn those sight words so she can read to find out Who Took The Cake?
Another thing I would like to add is that we do discuss the punctuation marks as well it just naturally happened and she was ready and understands. I will be adding more work on the shelves so she can deepen her knowledge of these mechanics.
We do not read the entire book in one sitting, it is a gradual progress that happens as Janessa learns the sight words using The Three Period lesson. It is fun, it is great work that has Janessa walking in the door asking me is it reading time.
