This is the first book in the series of beginning readers from ReadingTeacher.com.
New Sounds in Book 1
/a/ /m/ /s/
I, see - Special Words
Sam - decodable
The 80 books in the series use systematic phonics to ensure that your beginning readers will get a great start in reading proficiency.
The books begin at a very simple level and gradually introduce new sounds and words until students have mastered all 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language.
The books should be read in order, because the sounds and words in each book build upon those learned in previous books. It is important that students master each book before moving on to the next.
Each new word throughout the program is repeated at least 5 times in the book in which it first appears and 5 more times in the next 10 books.
In his encyclopedia, Mat the Rat discovers a picture of a real lion and learns many things about lions. Mat sees what a real lion looks like, where he lives and what he eats. Mat is so excited that he wants his friend Sam, who is a lion, to read about the lions too.
