Readers are an essential part of any comprehensive literacy program, and literacy research indicates that students learn best when they learn to read first in their native language. Spanish-speaking students learning to read Spanish will delight in these engaging stories written by native speakers. The stories are fun, and the writing captures the repetition of sounds, musicality and rhythm that is characteristic of the Spanish language. The text and activities are color-coded to support our Reading Rodsr en espa?ol line, with manipulative-based activities in each book. The focus of each book correlates directly with the content of the Reading Rodsr en espa?ol kits, with each reader focusing on the skills from two of the corresponding kit's lessons. Includes 11 unique stories featuring original illustrations on every page, plus a Teaching Guide. Books are 16 pages each and measure 8" x 8". Comes in a sturdy and attractive box suitable for classroom display. Rods sold separately. This set of readers builds naturally and logically from the Spanish Conciencia fon?mica/Phonemic Awareness Readers (LER 3435). The focus in this second-level set of readers is on reading more difficult open syllables and words with ch, x, v and other challenging sounds; reading closed syllables (cal, tin, bot); using the variant sounds of c, g, and x; and reading words with accents, consonant clusters, diphthongs and more. For use with LER 7036 fon?mica y vocabulario (Phonics and Vocabulary) Kit or LER 7016 S?labas y letras (Syllables and Letters) Reading Rodsr Set. Set of 11 Readers plus Teaching Guide.
