Pre-reading skills and literacy are part of our scope as SLPs (speech-language pathologists). In my search for early reader texts, this series has been one of my best finds. The three books in the I Can Read It! series contain collections of stories with early word families and sight words that are taught in kindergarten and first grade. The stories are substantial in length and are comprised of mostly controlled vocabulary, making them great for building reading fluency and automaticity. There’s a preview of the table of contents and some stories from the first book on Amazon but not the second or third. You can do a search on Google Images to take a look at the index in both the second and third books. There’s a fourth book in the series that contains just lists of the word patterns in each book. Stay tuned because I’ll be sharing more recommendations for early readers in the next couple of posts.
