I am learning to use the illustrations to help me read. Illustrations help me read tricky words. I can look at the pictures and find words that match the sounds of the letters I can hear and see. Pictures give me clues when I am reading. They help me know what the story is about. I can talk about the pictures.
"It is tricky to read some tricky words. The pictures help me to read. It is easy to see the writing and read the words. I am proud of reading books by myself." - Matthew
