Books 1 and 2:
Students are focusing on three-letter words and more simple letter blends to make reading more fluent and focusing on speed and mastery. These are called CVC words (consonant, vowel, consonant) and would be appropriate for around kindergarten to Grade 1, depending on the child and their development. Book 2 will begin to bridge into the next level or reading.
Students are focusing on four-letter words and beginning to focus on changing sounds of letters as well as exceptions. These are called CVCV words (consonant, vowel, consonant, vowel, such as bake) and would be appropriate for around kindergarten to Grade 1, depending on the child's development and the goals of the family.
Students are focusing on four-letter words, compound words, and how vowels can combine to make diagraphs (new sounds). These are called CVVC words (consonant, vowel, vowel, consonant, such as bear) and would be appropriate for around kindergarten to Grade 1, depending on the child's development and the goals of the family.How to place my kids:
- If you point to any letter of the alphabet in any order, can your child name the letter without hesitation?
- If you repeat the same exercise, can they say the primary sound of each letter (at least 80% of the time without hesitation)?
- If you point to any number from 1-10 can your child name it and do they know what that represents?
- Can your child count from 1-20?
YES! If you answered yes to all of the questions above, then your child is ready for Burrows and Holes!
NO: If you answered no to some of these, you'll want to start somewhere in our Letters and Numbers series.
This sounds too easy: IF your child is already reading three letter words, we recommend starting with book 2 or 3 of Ready to Read, which will be more advanced reading and help transition from early reading to grade 1 level reading so they are ready for early reader in our full units.
