Bob Books for Beginning Readers - "I read the WHOLE book!" - Early Reader Success

Sight Words

First Grade


Sight words are common words that appear again and again in your children’s reading material. Knowing these words “by sight” is essential for reading fluency. This set provides more practice by introducing another set of sight words.

With Sight Words First Grade we continue with our easy method for introducing sight words.  Consistent short vowels and simple stories mean children sound out (decode) the story, and must memorize only three new sight words per book. With plenty of repetition and context clues, your young reader will quickly master the next set of 30 sight words.

Words and stories in Sight Words First Grade are slightly longer and more complex than the Kindergarten set.  Succeeding reading these books builds confidence in the progressing reader.

Inside the box you'll find:

♦ 10 easy-to-read, hilarious small books, 12 pages each. 

♦ Slightly longer and more complex stories. 

♦ All stories told in one syllable, three-, four- and five-letter words, plus sight words. 

♦ Consistent short vowels mean easy decoding in the rest of the story. 

♦ Three new sight words introduced in each book. 

♦ 30 two-sided, sight words flash cards.

I'm in love. Wait is it silly to say that about beginning readers and curriculum for teaching your child to read? Oh forget it, ridiculous or not I love these little books!

Bob Books are great! I learned to read with Bob Books, and my now-5-year-old started reading when she was 4 because of Bob Books! The alphabet books are wonderful because they enforce the sounds of the letters!

Love Bob Books!  As a Kindergarten and preschool teacher, I look for simplicity for my students to be successful.  Bob Books are the perfect thing!
