These short stories with entertaining illustrations will engage your reader, keep their interest, make learning to read fun and instill a love of reading.
The entire series of books is within the Emergent stage of reading, allowing readers ample time to practice and build their confidence at an appropriate level before moving to the next stage.
When students struggle to sound out words, comprehension decreases. When students don't understand what they're reading, it's frustrating!
Help Your Child
Become a Reader
Tips on the inside cover help the adult in guiding the reader. A word box in the back of each book allows for a review of decodable words in the story.
Four stars are included for the reader to color as an incentive for reading an entire book. The books are made of thicker weight to handle multiple reads without the pages ripping.
Meets Common Core
Children gain the necessary fundamental reading skills to help them meet Common Core State Standards in literacy.
I created Yum and Yam Early Phonics Readers based on my many years of teaching young students how to read. As an experienced Early Elementary teacher, I recognize what motivates beginning readers, what engages their attention, and how to move students through the frustration which can stop their progress.
When I couldn’t find the correct level books I needed, I created my own. Now I’m ready to share my years of experience with you.
Why Yum & Yam Early Phonics Readers?
There are many phonics series on the market, but none stay in the Emergent stage of reading. They tend to have one or two books in the Emergent stage, then jump to the more advanced Early Reading stage. Yum & Yam books give the reader 10 books at the emergent stage so that children can have plenty of practice blending and decoding at an appropriate level.
Is your child an emergent reader?
Emergent readers are learning how to blend sounds and decode simple words. Ample time to practice in the Emergent Stage is crucial before moving on to the more difficult, Early Reading stage.
