Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to keep working on Magic E words when they are followed with an “s” or “d” at the end.
Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.
Let’s get started.
Today we're going to practice adding to Magic E words in a few ways. First, have your child read these words that end with the “s as a zzz” sound:
take / takes
home / homes
use / uses
bite / bites
amuse / amuses
Now let’s try some that end with the “d” sound:
use / used
like / liked
poke / poked
blame / blamed
hope / hoped
complete / completed
To help your child practice these skills, see if they can read this story, adapted from FreeReading.net.
We can make a list of things we like or not.
Let’s rate them! Give them a score. Make a game of it.
Give a bad score to stuff you hate.
Give a good score to stuff that you like a lot.
For sure, I rate cake as a ten.
You can rate tunes.
Pete rates that book a six.
Steve gives this game a seven.
Lots of stuff gets rated.
If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble with anything, have them go back and practice until they can read it fluently.
That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
