Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today is a review day. We’ll do some word practice, give your child some “silly sentences” to read, and then end with a short decodable story.
Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.
Let’s get started.
I snuck in the word “why” earlier, but let’s practice it. Have your child read it just a little bit louder each time they see the word, as if they are getting angry about something:
Now let’s read it in a few sentences:
Why did you take my carrot?
Why is Sally laying down?
Why did you move my cheese?
See if your child can read this short story, adapted from FreeReading.net.
Time to Run
What can run?
A white rabbit can run.
What else can run?
A duck with luck, a deer with cheer, or a kitten with a mitten can all run.
When do we run?
We run in the morning or in the afternoon. We stop before bedtime.
Which way do we go?
We can run here or there. We can go anywhere.
But why do we run?
We run to get there fast. We run to not be last. We run to win, we run for fun.
Then we sleep.
If they read it smoothly, great! If they stumble, have them keep practicing until they can it smoothly.
That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time!
