Giving your students lots of practice in reading sight vocabulary and using decoding skills is vital for your student's success.  Yes, an over dependence on decodable book can make reading instruction stilted.  That's why reading instruction needs to include read-alouds (to provide engaging models of reading authentic tests) some easy to read books and finally decodable books that immerse your students in language that they can access.

This little book gives students practice in two sets of sight words that are foundational for future reading and academic success:  Days of the week, and colors.   As your student reads the book to themselves, following reading it as suggested below, get the crayons or markers out so they can color the bones the right color.  How about adding a page, and having the students pick another color bone for Sam? 

Using the Book

  • Use Each I Can Read It Booklet many times throughout the term(s).
  • Model it by reading it to the child.
  • Have the child read it while you chime in.
  • Have the child illustrate the pages where appropriate.
  • Read the story backwards or read each page backwards, this makes the child think about the words.
  • Point to different words in the story and ask the child to read the specific word.
  • Print the words from the book and help the child think of rhyming words. For instance say: What rhymes with fish or can? The child may say dish or fan. Ask how that rhyming word would be spelled. Print some of the rhyming words and try to extend the vocabulary withthose new words. Use any words in the book that will help the child learn more word patterns.
