The Magic Penny Reading Secrets Book One has 96 pages which empower children by introducing all the vowel sounds and their spelling combinations in order to develop automatic decoding (the foundation of reading comprehension). These skill books also provide many opportunities for strengthening writing and critical thinking skills. The companion Gumball Books further reinforce these skills. (We suggest that each student have a Magic Reading Secrets Book One because they are consumable, however, you only need five sets of Gumball Books per classroom because you use them in small learning centers guded by an adult. You don’t use them with an entire class at the same time.) These materials guide children to become wonderful, fluent readers and writers! You will be AMAZED! The companion Gumball Books reinforce the children's reading, writing and critical thinking skills.
