Bud-e is a first steps to literacy program and the first steps a child takes for themselves into the reading world should not be overly challenging. It is vital that they gain confidence and an 'I can do it' attitude. Bud-e books are very simple at the early reading levels and gradually increase in difficulty. Reading is all about getting meaning. Meaning depends on quick, automatic and effortless recognition of words. Young readers rely on the illustrations to tell the story a great deal, and at the same time they should begin to build a bank of words that they can recognise quickly. These are called 'high-frequency' or 'sight' words - they are the linking words that appear most often in print. In order to read and write fluently (with comprehension), children need to be able to automatically read and spell these high-frequency words. In Bud-e word and letter knowledge are integrated into the books to help your child make sense of the stories. Listening to and responding to playful and engaging poems and songs builds phonological awareness by playing with rhymes, word patterns and repetition.
