Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! Introduce developing readers to key sight words with this fun, phonics-based set of easy-to-read stories.

Sight words, also known as high-frequency words, are common words that appear again and again in children's reading materials. Learning high-frequency words is essential for reading fluency. Kids learn to easily recognize 30 of these words in Bob Books Sight Words - First Grade. Each simple story introduces three new sight words commonly taught in first grade. Decodable words in this set are more complicated than in Bob Books Sight Words - Kindergarten, but consistent short vowels, repetition, and simple, supportive pictures keep the text easy to read and gently advance young readers' skills.

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 10 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 12 pages each, 14-40 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands
  • 30 two-sided flashcards to practice the sight words in the set
  • A parent guide with tips for helping your child learn to read

Each book includes:

  • 30 new sight words: 3 new words per book
  • Decodable text: Mostly three- to five-letter words with short vowels that can be sounded out (bug, soft, sled)
  • Simple sentences (Plums are in a tree.)
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words

Guided Reading Levels: C, D | Lexile® Measure: 30L - 390L | Bob Books Level: Stage 2
