Remember when you first started reading to your child? You probably used your finger as a guide to help them follow along. This package includes what they call the "magic finger" that the child can use to help them keep their place while reading. Also included is a reading guide strip that the reader places on the sentence they are reading so they don't lose their place. How many times has your child read to you only to re-read the same sentence several times because they were confused as to where they were at in the story? My son seemed to prefer the finger over the reading strip because it was fun and engaging but I could see how the reading strip would be successful for many students! What I love about this program is it seems to help with the transition from reading with a parent to reading on their own. When I would first have my first grader go off and read on his own he would pick the shortest, easiest book because he wanted to take a short cut. Since I've started the READS program, he actually enjoys reading and doesn't try to simply take the easy way out.
These question cards and the sticker reward chart are my son's favorite aspects of this program. This is definitely a program I will continue to use throughout the year and am excited to do so! Pictured below is the speedy speller which is perfect for my son! If your child needs help spelling a word when answering their READS question, this "mini dictionary" is perfect for little hands! Actually, we use this in other subjects in our homeschool because of the perfect selection of words in this speller. It isn't overwhelming and easy for a beginner to use!
