  1. Karen

    Fantastic! Simple enough that my child will read it. We use coloured counters to keep track with our fingers. Addition of diagraphs and actual sentences. He didn’t know what a yam was, so he had to read the word!

    • Kari @ Fun Early Learning

      That’s a great idea to use counters. Thank you for your feedback! Happy Teaching! )
