WORDS t weet ! tw e Some use f u l wor d s s t n e r a for p This book can be used with children who have not yet learned to read and with beginner readers. Each picture-packed page is fun to read together, and a great way to help children's language and literacy skills. Picture-and-word pages Most of this book is made up of picture-and-word pages filled with nouns, plus some verbs and adjectives. These pages help broaden your child’s vocabulary and knowledge. Story pages There are also five simple stories to read that introduce more useful words, put words into context, and help sentence writing and story writing skills. How to help your child get the most out of this book All the pages in this book offer lots of opportunities for talking and learning. Enjoy exploring and talking about them together. Point out things your child likes. For instance, you could say, “Look, there’s a tiger! Can you roar like a tiger?” or “Which fruit do you like?” Go at your child’s pace. Let her take the lead and turn the pages. Stop if she is tired, and return to the book another time. For children who are not yet reading Point to the pictures as you read the words and sentences to help them identify things, and to show how the pictures and words are connected. For children who are beginning to read As they read, or as you read together, point to the words, or encourage them to point, to help their letter and word recognition. Following the stories Pre-readers and beginner readers can follow the stories by running a finger along the dotted lines. This helps their fine motor skills, too. “Can you find?” games and simple questions There are “Can you find?” games and simple questions on the picture-and-word pages that encourage learning. Your child may need help with these, or he may like you to join in and answer with him. Most importantly, follow your child’s interests, talk about things you know he enjoys, give lots of praise as he answers the questions, and have fun! Contents A note about highfrequency words High-frequency words, or sight words, are words that occur most often in books and other writing. Many are not nouns, verbs, or adjectives, but they are useful words such as “the,” “and,” “it,” “I,” and so on. When children begin to read at school, they learn high-frequency words because these words will help them make sense of a sentence. Since quite a few can’t be sounded out, children practice learning them by sight. This book contains some highfrequency words, particularly in the question text and story pages. A list of Fry’s first 100 highfrequency words is below. The 100 words are in frequency order. the of and a to in is you that it he was for on are as with his they I at be this have from or one had by words but not what all were we when your can said there use an each which she do how their if will up other about out many then them these so some her would make like him into time has look two more write go see number no way could people my than first water been called who am its now find long down day did get come made may part Me and my body 8 My family and friends 10 Things to wear 12 Food and drink 14 Story: All in a day 16 Around the house 18 Toys and playtime 20 In the kitchen 22 Favorite pets 24 Story: Tink’s story 25 In the yard 26 Describing people 28 In the country 30 In the city 32 Story: Let’s play school 34 Around the farm 36 Animals in the wild 38 River, lake, and sea animals 40 Full speed ahead! 42 Story: Where will we go? 44 Noisy words!
