I wrote names from the book around the plate. I tried to put in words that were not her sight words or word family words and where not easy for her to tap out. A star was put by the first word to give her a starting point. Then I cut between the names.
Rose and I read over the names on the plate. I explained how she would use the plate. That each time she came to a name on the plate she would fold the name down. Rose then started reading her book.
Rose enjoyed reading this way. It made some of the harder words in her books easier. Rose also asked that I make a few more plates for her to use. I did her DK Readers: Meet the Dinosaurs. It took 2 plates, but was just as much fun for Rose to use.
