Word Families in Sentence Context may be used in many different ways. For example, you may read one sentence and your student/s read the next. You may read them together as choral readings. You may read the sentence and then your student/s read the sentence after you. Notice that the target phonic pattern is easily spotted in the target words in the left hand column. The eyes can easily detect the similarities and differences instantly. Then the word is found in sentences that follow speech patterns. This makes it easier for a child's mind to utilize language experiences and anticipate the words being used. To prove to yourself the power of this technique, check to see if a student can read the word "attacking." If the student can't, then start at the beginning with the read-along-with-me technique. By the time you get to the word attacking your student will be able to read it instantly.
