Lesson information

Finding fun, motivating books for early readers to engage with can be very motivating! My son was very eager to read this book and had so much fun re-reading it again and again. You can see how proud he is to make his reading sound like talking as he continues to gain fluency.

During this lesson, your child will spend a few days building fluency with the book A Pig, A Fox, and A Box by Jonathan Fenske. They will engage in gross motor activities, engaging reading activities, sight word practice, an online read along, creating the characters, and other activities to help them gain fluency and build up their repertoire of sight words that they know automatically.
