Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the word “all” and other words that have the “all” sound.
Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.
Ok, let’s get started.
Today’s Letter Sounds
Today we’re going to work on the “all” sound, like in the words “ball” or “tall.” Have them point as they read the word "all" a few times:
Now we’re going to work on blending the “all” sound in words. Your child can start slowly by saying each sound individually, but each time, they should try to say it just a bit faster.
Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:
Did they get it right? If they're still reading it as "wuh-all" by the end of the sequence, ask them to do it again until they are reading the word "wall" cleanly and clearly.
See if your child can read this story, adapted from FreeReading.net.
A Fast Ball
A ball fell from the back of a truck. It spun down the hill. It was fast!
It went past a class as the kids did jumping jacks.
It went by a small pond with a duck swimming in it.
The ball fell in the mud next to the pond. It was stuck… until a car went flying by.
The wind from the car sent the ball up... and back onto the bed of the red truck.
If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them keep working until they get it right.
That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time,
