Target specific sounds with Read-Aloud Books that partner well with any phonics lesson that corresponds to a particular book's target sound. Read-Aloud Books also build critical phonemic awareness skills.
Why Use Read-Aloud Books
Read-Aloud Books introduce and expose students to the sounds that different letters or combinations of letters make, help teachers provide models of fluent reading, and build oral and listening comprehension skills.
Alliteration with consonants or repetition of vowel sounds in each book provides opportunities for students to demonstrate listening for particular units of sound, or phonemes, in the initial, medial, and final positions of words.
How to Use Read-Aloud Books
Each Read-Aloud Lesson provides suggestions for listening and comprehension skills to explore with each book focused on the target sound or set of sounds.
Used in combination with Alphabet Books, Sound/Symbol Books, and Decodable Books, Read-Aloud Books provide critical practice to build foundational literacy skills.
Phonological Awareness Lessons also use the Read-Aloud Books for an optional listening activity at the end of each lesson.
