Easy Readers for Articulation
Do you want to make an impact both on children’s articulation AND reading skills? Do you cringe sending home articulation words that are unreadable to a young student? Then, Articulation Easy Readers are perfect for you! These fun coloring books were designed to cover the common articulation error sounds for students in Kindergarten.
There are nine targeted articulation sounds with five books for each sound for a total of 45 books! Each book is six “pages” (3 full pages cut in half) long and contains five phrases, with at least two target sounds per phrase. Each book reading will produce at least ten target sounds. If a child’s homework is to read the book five times, they’ve just practiced their sound 50 times!
Sounds covered include initial: /k, d, f, g, l, -l blends, s, s- blends, sh/.
Each Articulation Early Reader:
-Contains the targeted sound at least twice per page.
-Uses repetitive lines to enhance reading skills.
-Features a model of the tongue/lip placement for correct articulation
The words in the books were carefully chosen to meet one or all of the following criteria:
-Words are phonetic and easy to read (such as CVC).
-They are high frequency words found Fry’s Sight Word list.
-Clear pictures help the reader to comprehend the text.
