Jump into first grade reading with these one- and two-vowel word stories that are all about animals! The 15 stories in this delightfully illustrated Fun with Pets will be an exciting addition to your child’s reading journey. This is the first book (1a) in the Abeka Reading Program for grade 1. Each of the nine books gradually advances your child’s reading skills in accordance with his phonics instruction.

Product Benefits

  • Character-building truths. As your child reads stories about Ted and his red hen or Kate and her pet ducks, he will learn the value of Christian character traits such as cleanliness, friendship, and thankfulness.
  • Focus on phonics. Before each story, consonants will be introduced with images of small flashcards such as “F” as in “Fox”, while the vowel for the story will be introduced in blends such as “a” as in “fa”. Challenging sounds are noted with an opportunity to practice them in small phrases from the story. Your child can approach the story feeling confident and prepared as he learns to read step by step.
  • Coloring fun! Your child can celebrate reading the story by coloring the page at the end of each one.
  • Reading comprehension and review. Know that your child understands! Each story is followed by an exercise such as matching sentences with pictures, reading words and phrases from the story, or marking true statements about animals. Other comprehension and discussion questions are included in the Teacher Edition (sold separately).
