Reading Skills Builder provides practice in the three essential strategies for learning to read – phonics, word families and sight words. Your child practices these reading strategies in fun, meaningful ways while improving his fluency and comprehension.
Reading Skills Builder K1 and K2 give your child a headstart in learning to read by equipping him with the skills needed to decode words easily and read fluently.
Phonics, word families and sight words are three essential skills that aid reading fluency. The understanding of phonics sound patterns leads to knowledge of word families. Knowledge of word families enhances your child’s abilities to recognize words. Quick recognition of sight words leads to faster decoding, which in turn leads to increased fluency and better comprehension.
Reading Skills Builder Levels 1 to 3 let your child practice essential reading strategies in meaningful ways while improving fluency and comprehension.
Phonics knowledge has a positive effect on your child’s ability to decode words and is a reliable predictor of later skill in reading comprehension. Sight word knowledge is also necessary for reading fluency and comprehension. As your child learns to recognize sight words with accuracy and automaticity, he reads more smoothly and at a faster rate.
