As I mentioned in the last post, I have begun the "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons" book with my four and a half year old daughter. She has completed the first five lessons of the book, and we are now following up with the supplementary worksheets that I created to compliment DISTAR's fabulous reading program (available for sale here.)
Since completing Lesson 5, we go over the flash cards (seen above) for the sounds m, a, s and long e, every morning first. And then, I give her one of the complimentary worksheets to practice.
Since they are laminated, we use dry erase markers and then wipe them clean to give them another use, later.
This additional practice has been excellent for giving her practice with the sounds and the needed repetition connection with hand-eye coordination.
Plus, she just seems to be having fun with it. (It took three careful tries on her part to complete the picture of herself above. I was terribly impressed with her finished product.)
The included crafts are also a fun way for her to connect the dots with sounds, words and imagery.
All of the supplemental worksheets seen in this post are included here in our "After Five Phonics packet":
