Today’s free reading lessons are for Bob Books Set 1, Book 8, called Muff and Ruff.
There’s a lot to learn in the first few pages of this book, but that’s okay. Our students are ready!
In the very first lesson, we’re introducing three new sounds: f, short-u, and o that says oo as in too.
I actually put f and short-u both on one card since we were doing it in the same lesson.
I put the o as in too sound on a separate card because it usually takes longer to learn.
If your student initially rejects the idea that o makes a different sound than what they were taught previously, just remind him that some letters make a lot of different sounds, and that’s okay. It is like how some animals make only one sound while others are very noisy.
For this book, you may need to think about how to teach double consonants.
In Lesson Two, we encounter yet another sound that the letter o can make. Gasp! Really, it’ll be okay. I choose to teach it as the blend or and this has always worked well. See here for card information and tips on teaching the or blend.
