Introduction

In the Lessons below you will find a guide to help you teach the basics of reading to your children. Included in each Lesson are...

  • Lesson Outline for your personal use
  • Vocabulary teaching tips
  • Lesson Story and accompanying word list
  • A worksheet to test your students' comprehension of the material
  • A game at the end for a more fun way to engage your students

For each Lesson you will need to print the Lesson Story, Word List and Worksheet for each student in your class. Sometimes the Game at the end of each Lesson needs to be filled out by each student, but sometimes you will need to do some preparation before your lesson. It's recommended to look over the Lesson you plan on teaching so you will know what to print.

Enjoy and have fun!
