This will be my last contribution for awhile but I promise to get back to you ASAP. Still plenty of good stuff to come from other members in my absence. This is an adaptation of a slightly longer story I wrote in 2007. I dedicate this story to Moravc for requesting I do something with double sounds. This story targets the /ee/ sound with the spell...

Jomo: A reading with comprehension exercises, quizzes and suggestions for use.
Suggestions for use: Have the children read a paragraph each out loud and then you read it. Then have them ask you questions about the vocabulary. David, what is Mombasa? Its a big city in Kenya. (You may want to have an atlas or the world map handy.) Ask the children questions about the text and personalize the text as you go along. Who is Fat...

This story uses only single letter sounds and the word of, so early readers and dyslexics should have little difficulty in reading it. I usually have the children sit in a circle and read a page at a time, including the fr...
