Overview

TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ WHILE HAVING FUN! Simple sentences and strong picture cues help guide young children to reading success with this award-winning learn-to-read series.

What could be more exciting than hearing your child read a book to you for the first time? The Now I'm Reading! books for emerging readers are just right for children who want to read but aren't quite ready to sound out words using phonics.

Each of the 8 stories in PRE-READER: WORD PLAY uses a proven system of simple, patterned text and strong picture cues to build confidence in the earliest readers. Each booklet focuses on at least 2 specific high-frequency sight words, which are introduced in an appropriate and organized sequence.

Inside the CD binder-like package, you'll find:
· 8 stories with engaging text and fun illustrations
· "Words to Know" and "Stretch Your Mind" activity sections
· Parent/Teacher Guide to help get the most out of each story
· Activity Book with suggestions for ways to expand your pre-reader's skills

Perfect for ages 3 and up! Books in the NIR Pre-Reader Level focus on read-along stories, strong picture clues, predictable patterned text, and letter and sound recognition.

The concepts and skill progression in the NIR! series are aligned to meet Common Core State Standards. This book is Fountas & Pinnell Level LB-A; information on individual booklet levels and Lexile Measures is available at the Now I'm Reading website.
