Level D(5-6) Library - Learn To Read Books

Level D(5-6) Library - Learn To Read Books

Visions Encoded Inc.

Get a complete set of Level D(5-6) books for less than 1/2 the price of Scholastic leveled PDF books and less than 1/3 the cost of print books. Plus, these books are interactive! Remember to check out the Apple iTunes educational discount for classroom teachers - get an additional 50% off!

Level D(5-6) Library - Learn To Read Books contains six level 5 books followed by six level 6 books.
 Books at levels 5 and 6 are fairly simple books. Many of them contain sentences that are similar to each other in structure. Having fewer and increasingly complex repeating language patterns allows children to make some use of memory while, at the same time, requiring them to look carefully at the words. The close correspondence between text and pictures, found in Levels 5 and 6, helps beginning readers experience success. Level D books are designed for children who are just learning how to read – like children in Grade One or children who are learning English as an additional language.


Each book presents one story. When using any of our Learn To Read Books, the beginning reader should place his/her finger just below each word and then point to each word in succession while reading. Tapping just below any word causes the word to light up and allows the child to hear the word spoken aloud. The words have been recorded in Manitoba, Canada. If words are pronounced differently in the country/region where you live, simply use the custom recording feature and record the words in your own voice. Custom recorded audio can be transferred to other devices &/or various "Learn To Read" apps from Visions Encoded for the Mac and iOS platforms. The transfer can be done using email or iTunes file sharing.


Also included in the Learn To Read Library are high-frequency word flashcards for each story. We suggest that the sight words be practiced before a story is attempted. If a child has difficulty with a word, he/she can simply touch the word to hear it!

Since words in both the sight words section and in the story can be tapped to be heard, it is possible for a child to practice the words and read the story without assistance from a teacher or parent. To turn the sound off, simply toggle the physical mute switch on the device.



To learn to read, children need:

1. to learn letter sounds
2. to memorize high-frequency sight words
3. to read books at their level


Through the use of Learn to Read Books and a letter-sound app such as "Z is for Zebra", these three key components of learning to read can be taught and practiced on an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Mac.

The authors of Learn to Read Books are Celesta Thiessen and Francie Humby. Both are certified teachers. Celesta has a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Education . She has written early chapter books, novels for teens and for adults, and numerous short stories. Francie has a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education, and a Master of Education. As an Early Years teacher, she has thirty-six years of experience in teaching young children to read. In writing these Learn to Read books, Celesta and Francie made extensive use of the following resources:

Learn to Read!

Learn to Read!

NexStudios.jp

It can't be denied - kids love the iPhone!

So make learning to read fun for your early grade school child! Give a preschooler a head start! Or even give an older child a review!

Perfect for :

* Kindergarten

* First Grade

* Second Grade

Learn to Read! is a flash card deck of sight words, used in elementary schools across the United States to help children learn the building blocks of reading.

Complete with easy-to-read text, voice prompts, and example usages, Learn To Read! is an effective learning tool on a fun medium for children.

And on the iPhone, learning is on-hand for whenever the opportunity arises - waiting for food at a restaurant, an appointment at a doctor's office, or on a playdate.

Learn to Read! comes with complete lists of the five levels of sight words, also known as the Dolch Word List. This is a standard sight word list used throughout American schools. From 50 to 75 percent of all words used in school books, library books, newspapers, and magazines are in the Dolch Basic Sight Vocabulary of 220 words. They are "service words" (pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and verbs) which cannot be learned through the use of pictures and only through sight recognition and memory.

Practice makes perfect, so help your child develop their reading skills and excel in school by using Learn to Read! and keep an opportunity to learn ready and waiting in your back pocket.

Endorsed and recommended by teachers around the country!

"I encourage parents to practice sight words with their children whenever they can with school supplied flash cards, but these tend to get misplaced and opportunities are lost. If a parent has an iPhone, I'm almost requiring them to buy Learn To Read so that they have no excuse!"

Mrs. DeHart

1st Grade Teacher

Kings Glen Elementary School

Springfield, VA

"I can't emphasize the importance enough of lots of loving practice at home with sight words - these lay the foundation for a lifetime of reading. I recommend anything that helps parents practice more with their kids, and Learn To Read! fits that to a T"

Ms. Tisch

Kindergarten Teacher

Valley Elementary School

Beavercreek, OH

"This is a brilliant app - it combines the fun of the iPhone with the educational value of learning sight words - definitely edutainment at its best!"

Hear and Blend the Alphabet – Reading Readiness Made Fun and Easy With Phonemic Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Blending All Rolled Into One

Hear and Blend the Alphabet – Reading Readiness Made Fun and Easy With Phonemic Awareness, Letter Knowledge, and Blending All Rolled Into One

Sound Reasoning Learning Solutions, LLC

In order to read new words, children need to 1) see letters 2) think sounds and 3) blend those sounds together. This app breaks up those tasks so young children can practice the last one, blending sounds together, even if they don’t yet know the sounds of letters. This app allows four and five year olds to be successful at this foundational skill and ensures they start out using the correct part of their brain to avoid dyslexia. Children hear the separated sounds of simple three-letter words as the letters appear. Then they choose the picture that represents that word. Correct answers get an encouraging sound or a funny video, and wrong answers teach. Meanwhile, they are absorbing letter-sound relationships, developing phonemic awareness, and learning how to segment sounds into words--the key to spelling success!

Level C(3-4) Library - Learn To Read Books contains six Level 3 books followed by six Level 4 books. 
Books at Levels 3 and 4 are simple books. A similar sentence or a pair of similar sentences is used throughout a given book. These repeating language patterns allow children to make use of memory at this early stage of reading development. As well, the more often a child reads a particular word, the more secure the connection between that word’s appearance and its meaning becomes. The close correspondence between text and pictures, found in Levels 3 and 4, also helps beginning readers experience success. Level C books are designed for children who are just beginning to learn how to read – like children in Kindergarten or early Grade One or children who are learning English as an additional language.


Each book presents one story. When using any of our Learn To Read Books, the beginning reader should place his/her finger just below each word and then point to each word in succession while reading.
