All the "-All" Words

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.


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:


all

all

all


Word Practice


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:


w all

wall


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.


Now:


m all

mall


And:


t all

tall


And:


c all

call


And:


sm all

small


Decodable Story


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 went fast!

The ball sped past a class as the kids did jumping jacks.

It went by a small pond with a duck swimming in it.

The ball kept going... until a car hit the ball... and it went back onto the bed of the red truck.


The end.


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.
