<i>Reading Skills Builder</i> provides practice in the three essential strategies for learning to read — phonics, word families and sight words. The understanding of phonics sound patterns leads to knowledge of word families. Knowledge of word families enhances your child’s abilities to recognize words. Quick recognition of sight words leads to faster decoding, which in turn leads to increased fluency and better comprehension. Your child practices these reading strategies in fun, meaningful ways while improving fluency and comprehension!
