How to use the books- Notes for parents and teachers
Before you start each worksheet, cut out the flashcards behind. Flash a word for the child to read aloud. Allow him 3 seconds to read the word. If the child is unable to read the word, then the word should be read to him. Add on new flashcards every time you introduce a new worksheet. Make a point to review these words every day.
Aim to finish 1 worksheet (4 words) in 1 to 2 weeks times.
The worksheets begin with mostly two- or three- letter words, together with some descriptive words such as 'good' and action words such as 'jump'. As the child progresses, he will move on to more challenging words which consist of four or more letters, as well as words in their past tense form.
