Is your child ready to read? If they know all their letter sounds, then they can decode and read these very short books for children. Bup Pup vs. Ug Slug vs. Hug Bug is the fifth and final phonics eBook in this series and utilizes only the short vowel u.
Help your children hop into reading with this short story about what happens when a puppy, a slug and a ladybug meet. You can simply enjoy seeing the satisfaction of a child successfully reading a whole story, or you can use the opportunity to help kids begin to develop the skills of predicting what might happen and making inferences about what happened, as well as learning about ordinal numbers.
Short Vowel Shorts is a series of five phonics books for kids that can help them gain confidence as they learn how to read. The books are designed to be an engaging compliment to word family or phonics worksheets and other reading activities. They don’t contain any sight words, so children who know all their letter sounds but haven’t learned sight words yet can decode and read them, initially with help from a parent or teacher, and then by themselves.
Each story contains only one short vowel sound, so children are only deciphering one vowel sound for the whole story rather than a mix of multiple vowel sounds.
The aim of Short Vowel Shorts is to provide parents and teachers with an option for a phonics step between single letter sounds/word families and short stories that contain sight words and a mix of multiple vowel sounds. Hopefully, being in an illustrated story format, Short Vowel Shorts can be an engaging supplement to word families that will have children gaining skills, confidence, and enjoyment as readers, and saying: "Can I Read-It-On-My-Own?" and then: “I just Read-It-On-My-Own!”
