Daily(ish) Decodable: More words like "knee" and "knock"

The Daily(ish) Decodable program uses a standard format to work through one sound per day. There are simple instructions for you, the parent or caregiver, and any words in big bold letters are meant for your child to read out loud. 


If you want to review any prior lessons, those are all freely available here

Read It

Have your child read the passage below out loud:

Knox the Bee


Knox the bumble bee woke up.


Knox had a knack for finding the sweetest flowers. As he flew out of his honeycomb, he knew just the right way to get nectar.


After he got the nectar, he flew back to his honeycomb to make more honey.


But, oh no! Knox had a problem. His honeycomb had a hole, and the honey was dripping out. Knox knew he had to fix it quickly.


With some sap from a nearby tree, he patched the hole in the honeycomb. Now his honey was safe.


Knox slept well that night, dreaming of more sweet flowers.
