The Early Reading Series is designed to build core phonics skills and support children as they proceed at their own pace toward independent reading.
- Short vowels: Children learn to read and spell words with regular short vowel patterns (bed) and regular long vowel patterns (bake, meet).
- Phonics skills: To read independently, children must understand the relationship between the sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds.
- Sight words: Sight words are words that cannot be sounded out (the, where, etc.), so they must be learned by sight and memorized.
- Rhyming: Children learn that rhyming words have the same ending sounds and often share spelling patterns, which helps develop vocabulary.
