The LeapFrog LeapReader Learn to Read Volume 1 book set works with the Tag Reading System and the LeapReader Reading and Writing System (each sold separately). Explore all of the fun and educational LeapReader book sets – Book Set 1: Short Vowels, Book Set 2: Long Vowels, Silent E & Y, Book Set 3: Consonants, and Book Set 4: Advanced Vowels. The Early Reading series is designed to build core phonics skills and support children as they proceed at their own pace towards independent reading.
- Short vowels: Children learn to read and spell words with regular short vowel patterns ('bed') and regular long vowel patterns ('bake', 'meet').
- Phonics skills: To read independently, children must understand the relationship between sounds and the representing letters.
- Sight words: Sight words are words that cannot be sounded out ('the', 'where', etc.), so they must be learned by sight and memorised.
- Rhyming: Children learn that rhyming words have the same ending sounds and often share spelling patterns, which helps develop vocabulary.
