In this book, the word of is introduced. This word uses the schwa sound, which we’ve talked about before. If you do not remember reading the schwa post, I suggest you do so before teaching this book.
The o form of the schwa sound is the rarest, so it was somewhat difficult for me to decide what words to put on the binder card. I finally decided on this:
As you can see, the last word, bottom, only uses the schwa sound for the second o.
Please remember to use these words in sentences as you introduce them. Not that you have to do this each time you review, but it is good to start with the words in context. So, for example, as your child reads of, you follow up with, “That’s right! Of! As in: I have two of these things. Of.”
Next, you will need to introduce the ou diphthong. You can find the binder card for that here.
Some children do get stuck on the list of names, but usually, having introduced a list using commas with the previous book, this is just seen as more practice.
