As retired CA credentialed teacher K-6 with 10 yrs as a kindergarten teacher, I love how sequential and step by step this book makes reading giving plenty of practice with previous words taught by adding only 1 word at a time to be read with the previously taught words.
My first grade grandson struggles to read and fussed about it until I got this book & he told me, "I love this book! I never knew reading could be this much fun!"
It's a great tool for students especially 6-8yr olds, who developmentally don't pick up reading quickly even though they've been taught all the sounds and likely their readiness doesn't click in until 2nd-3rd grade. Excellent "structure notes" are available at the end of the book, for parents or teachers - Cynthia Claffey
A great book that does exactly what it says!
The book uses repetitive words and phrases along with great pictures to help jumpstart the learning process. It also turns all this into a story the kids will enjoy. The dog, the kids and their interactions will be fun and funny for the little ones to read. This is the beginning of a whole series of teaching books and if they all follow the patterns of this book, then each will be well worth the read. - AmazonReviewer
Finally a resource that links sight words to actual sentences and book-style stories.
My son is a very smart 6 year old about to enter the 1st grade. However, reading did not come as easy as we thought it would. Prior to kindergarten, he was an avid reader. Following kindergarten he was frustrated with books and reading, and upset he could not pick up any book from his shelf and read it. Kindergarten taught him Fry sight words via flash cards and corresponding books, with levels increasing as books and flash card sets were mastered. However, he and many of his classmates did not seem to make the connection between the flash cards and words in books.
Since reading these Word by Word Level 1 - books 1 and 2, my son is excited about reading again. He sits and reads these books to us on his own with little to no help. He willingly reads to us at bedtime with no fight. We do not need to read it to him first. The repetition of the words in a story setting helps to reinforce what he is learning, while he feels the success of actually reading a book on his own. Also, you are learning the sight words in a book-sentence setting, with one new word per page, and repeat of earlier sight words introduced to reinforce and help with mastery.
He loves the cloud set-up for the text, kind of comic style, and how the number of sentences per page increases as you make your way through to book. He really feels an accomplishment when he reads a page all by himself with lots of text. Thank you for this! We are excited to continue with Books 3 and 4. Very hopeful this will make reading in first grade much easier for him, and help him meet his personal goal of being an independent reader. - Jennifer Gruda,
