Wise Owl's Vowels Extra Practice Stories By Fran Palazzolo
Paperback: $26.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
Independent reading is the goal for which we strive, when we are teaching a child to read. In 'Wise Owl's Vowels', the lessons are more or less guided lessons. The teacher, reading tutor or parent is... More > there with the child to introduce new phonics concepts and new vocabulary for each lesson. After that lesson is finished, that's when this book would be used. Example: The first lesson in 'Wise Owl's Vowels' teaches sounding out short 'a' word and teaches the words this, that, what and idea. The first lesson in 'Extra Practice Stories' will have those same words and phonics sound. The child would not be learning anything new. This book can be seen as a way to reinforce the skills learned in each lesson of 'Wise Owl's Vowels'. For teachers, it can be used when you have independent group time or it can be sent home as homework. A second use for this book would be to reteach the new concepts. In that case, the book would be for more guided reading. This book is also available as a download.< Less

This is a companion book for 'Alphatalk Street'. In it, they will see the main character, Emma, who is not happy with her printing and wants to improve. Children will learn to use three lines to... More > practice basic strokes and to print each letter of the alphabet, both capital and small. The top part of each page is a recap of that letter from the original book, 'Alphatalk Street'. The bottom of each page has students first trace and then print the letter. Having the PDF of this workbook allows the parent or teacher to run off as many copies of a particular letter as they want. The workbook also comes in print. You can get it for $12.50 at Lulu.com. Now, more than ever, it's important to work on printing at home. Many of the school systems are giving handwriting a place on the back burner. If you are a parent, much of your child's learning to print is up to you. If you are a classroom teacher or reading resource teacher, these pages are great to send home for homework, so that the parents can help with this skill.< Less
