Yay! It’s time for another set of new phonics books!
(This post contains affiliate links.)
I’ve been working like a crazy woman to get all my phonics readers done by the middle of January! Ready for a new set?
Today we’re taking a break from the long vowel patterns to work on some short vowel word families. But these are more challenging than the short u books I shared in set 5.
These add a few more letters after the vowel. The books in this set are for the following word families:
- unch words
- ump words
- ung words
- ush words
- unk words
- ust words
Let’s take a peek at one of the books. (And apologies for the dark pictures… the weather is just not cooperating for me on this dreary December day!)
Each book begins like this.
Clearly, the books aren’t stories. Rather, they’re an engaging way to practice a new phonics pattern… preferable to black and white flash cards. They’re a confidence builder too! Your child will probably be more excited to say, “I read the whole book!” than “I did my flashcards.” 🙂
I love these goofy people.
You can see that your child will also review phonics patterns we’ve previously learned. This page reviews the short vowel words man, mad, and will.
On the last page, your child can re-read all the new words.
How to assemble:
- Separate the stack into each individual book. Each book consists of two pages front to back.
- Cut across the horizontal center of the pages.
- Insert the pages into each other, using the page numbers as a guide.
- Staple with a long arm stapler.
