18.5.2022 was my 7th day with Jack.
We covered word family ‘ot’ and ‘oo’.
I explained that this was the short ‘oo’ as in book, look, cook.
The Dolch Words I taught him are:
come, down, as, far, was, go, help, said
Since he is familiar with many Dolch words I started him with Key Words – book 2b. He could read them reasonably well but slowly. He still guessed words as this habit has yet to be broken.
He guessed the word ‘tank’ for ‘water’. I asked him to look at the word instead of the fish tank on the page and he got it right.
As you can see, I am using my book to teach him phonics and Dolch words and have started him with Key Words – Peter and Jane.
I am doing two chapters from my book but giving him only 8 Dolch words to memorise. As the chapters are very short I have started him on Key Words.
