In Bob Books Set 3, Book 5 (called “Summer”), we see the first instance of beginning a sentence with a capital I that does not actually say “I.” What I mean is, there is a sentence that begins with the word it and so that i at the beginning is capitalized. Up until now, our students haven’t read a capital-I except in the word “I” — which means that almost every student will misread “it” and “I” the first time. Be prepared to correct your student and encourage him to sound out this word. He’ll get the hang of it in no time!
Also in this book are some words that resemble sounds — we call this onomatopoeia. The words are Ahhh and Ohhh — I don’t make binder cards for these. Just guide your students, and try not to worry about these words too much. I tell my students that the h here is silent, and that’s the extent of it.
