Give your child the Right Start when learning to read with Right Start Readers.  Stage 3 is for children that have mastered the skills for reading CVC words (singular and plural), welded sounds, and consonant blends. The series is intended for all readers ages 4-8 years old, and even older struggling readers. Stage 3 introduces long vowel sounds and trigraph sounds. Right Start Readers are special because they are teacher-created stories that follow a logical and scientifically based progression of phonemic skills.  Children will not simply memorize what is on the page, or use the pictures to guess the words.  The slow progression of skills required to read these stories will allow your reader to experience excitement and success reading their first books! 

Books 1 & 2 build on the concepts mastered in Stage 1 & 2.  Readers will learn about long vowel sounds for the letters “a” and “i”.  Introducing long vowel sounds can be tricky since readers are not yet used to vowels saying their name. We will start by teaching them to read vowel-consonant-e (or magic e) words where the “e” at the end of the word is silent, and its purpose is just to make the  vowel say its name. Your reader will get just the right amount of practice without being overwhelmed with too many new concepts at once.
