Review Day: The Farmer and the Banker

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today is a review day. We’ll practice blending the sounds we learned this week and then give your kids a short “decodable” text to practice.


Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Let’s get started.


Word Practice


We’re going to work on blending sounds into 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:


m ay

may


And:


b oy

boy


Now let’s try some harder ones:


p er ch

perch


And:


sh ir t

shirt


And:


f ir st

first


And:


wh ir l

whirl


Decodable Story


Now see if your child can read this short story:


The Farmer and the Banker


One of them digs up roots.


The other adds up numbers.


One works in a barn.


The other fixes my math.


One runs after foxes.


The other helps me do my taxes.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time.
