Most children will start to decode (sound out words) in the three months after the kindergarten started. Beside the phonics, reading lesson will include sight words. Sight words are words that usually can be found in word such as, “the” or “my”. The pronouncing sight word that is not complies with phonetic principles, causing them difficult to pronounce it. To memorize these words can develop the reading fluency and comprehension greatly.

• Simple sentence that consists simple words
• Colorful, with pictures that suited with the text
• Short and simple stories with a little pages and match to the child interest
