Overview

Sight words are common words that appear again and again in your children’s reading material. Knowing these words “by sight” is essential for reading fluency. Bob Books Sight Words - First Grade gradually adds more complexity as your beginning reader acquires 30 new sight words. It is a great companion book to Bob Books Sight Words - Kindergarten.

Consistent short vowels in one syllable words of three, four or five letters, mean children can sound out (decode) the story.They learn three new sight words per book.

While words and stories in Sight Words First Grade are slightly longer and more complex than Sight Words Kindergarten, they are still suitable for a beginning reader.

Inside this eBook you'll find:

- 10 easy-to-read, hilarious small books, 12 pages each.

- Slightly longer and more complex stories.

- All stories told in one syllable, three-, four- and five-letter words, plus sight words.

- Consistent short vowels mean easy decoding in the rest of the story.

- Three new sight words introduced in each book.

- Context clues and illustrations give sight word hints.

About the Author

Lynn Maslen Kertell has been involved with Bob Books right from the beginning, starting with the first edition in the 1970s. Lynn pasted-up and hand-lettered the original Bob Books, created by her parents, Bobby and John Maslen, when she was in high school. As Lynn's own daughter was beginning to learn to read, returning to the family business was a natural step. Her experience tackling the fun, bonding and sometimes complex task of helping her child learn to read, showed her that Bob Books really work. There are many skills a child needs to become literate. Bob Books' measured approach respects the steps that turn a child into a reader, and entertains them with real stories that kids can relate to. Lynn brings the Maslen sense of humor, warmth and gentle encouragement to her writing, as she creates the next generation of Bob Books. She continues Bobby's phonics-based approach to teaching reading, and is proud to contribute to the millions of children who can say with pride, "I read the whole book!"® Lynn lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband and daughter.
