Ok but needs adult interaction,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 100 Words Kids Need to Read by 1st Grade: Sight Word Practice to Build Strong Readers (Paperback)
I will first state that I bought this for my 4 year old not for a child entering first grade to enhance the learning of the 30 words he already knows, so it was a little advanced in context for him but probably genuinely on the money for a child entering first grade. This book involves a great deal of reading and guidance and is not self explanatory to a child who cannot already read and involves a heavy amount of writing and filling in the blanks. While it offers some unique repetition for a portion of the words in the book and all do promote learning it is definitely misleading to think that this is going to train a child adequately on even half of 100 words. It concentrates on a fraction of these words and the remainder are listed on the first page. This is a nice supplemental book but certainly not a stand alone teaching aid.
