Here’s another video demonstration, this time of strategies to help a child successfully read a short, simple book.
The book contains only little words this child can sound out, plus a few common words of which he already has mental images, like “I” and “you” and “see”.
There are many simple, decodable books like the one in this video available, if you know where to look. Click here for a list. Many are also quickly (and often very affordably) available for iPad/tablet or other computers, as apps or electronic books.
Profuse thanks once again to this delightful student and his parents for allowing me to record and share this video.
Of course, as soon as I watched this video I started thinking of all the things I should/could have done better in this session.
Oh well, nobody’s perfect, and I hope it’s still useful.
