Reading Lesson 5- Reading Words and Sentences

Learning to read can be fun and easy. Once you have mastered the sounds you can focus more on words and sentences. The words in this part are simple. Note that every sentence begins with a capital letter, as do all names of people, places, specific things. Also, the word “I” always begins with a capital letter. Don’t forget to write the words from each lesson in your notebook. It will help you remember and you can use the book to help you practice.
