Let's read
A good foundation in alphabet is crucial for all subjects, where reading and writing are involved.

These reading books are ideal for children to read to their parents, friends and teachers, putting in the sort of practice that is essential for early reading. They progress gradually in vocabulary and grammar, with amusing characters and story lines, that have already been tested and enjoyed by many children. All books are written in a variety of different styles, fact and fiction, rhymes and narrative and speech. They provide a link between the school and the home with interesting points for discussion and play acting in accordance with the Portuguese Language Curriculum.

- Practice in recognizing letters and sounds together to "hear" the words. EX: to ga = cat
- Practice in recognizing words and simple sentences.
- Repeating the words of the mainstream
- Practice in guessing the text of the images, and in the context of history
- Practice in comprehension, speaking and listening.
- Practice using the list of words written to recognize / read individually. The words can be cut and mounted on cardboard and laminated.
- Practice using the words on cards to make their own sentences
- Can write / copy the sentences and make a drawing.
Differentiation   Children with learning difficulties need more practice with each book and every word. The books suffixed 'a' were written to such give support. Children that are doing well do not need to read the 'a' books, bt of course may do so. Books 7-9 are the most difficult, having more vocabulary.
Appraisement   When the child recognizes and reads all the words of Level 1, they may move up to Level 2. Also evaluates the alphabet again, and if all is right, introduces the letters with capital letters.
