Slowly is our class puppet! He helps us read by learning to listen to words that are sounded out s-l-o-w-l-y and then the children put the word together and say it fast!
As children learn to read they slowly sound out the letter sounds. Part of reading development is learning to put those sounds together faster to make a word. Each circle time Slowly shares 3-4 words with the class. They listen to Slowly say the word slow, then they say the fast.
