The Ideal Reading Scheme for Budding Readers
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Essential Sight Words is a series of graded readers that will teach your child to read. As the very first book in this series, it introduces and reinforces many basic sight words found in everyday reading. This book comprises eight readers in one.
The scheme is based on the Dolch word list and additional sight words* which are regarded as the top 25 most commonly used words in contemporary English literature. These 25 words make up over one-third of all printed material. So a solid foundation in this comprehensive list is the best start to your child’s journey in language development.
Research shows that learning to read in context is more effective than any other method such as the use of flash cards. You will notice that the readers are written in contexts familiar to children. The ability to relate in this way captures the little reader’s interest.
Confidence is the essence of successful learning. So repetition is used judiciously to consolidate learning and build the reader’s confidence. New words are highlighted as they are introduced. The book also includes a section on how the scheme is best used to make the most of your child’s reading experience.
Please note that this series of books are not 'picture books'. They are based on a proven systematic approach to reading, where children are encouraged to concentrate on the letters and words, without the distraction of pictures. So the use of pictures is limited to the beginning of each reader when new nouns are introduced. In this way the young mind is allowed to remain focused. This is considered a more traditional approach and one of the best ways of learning to read. It will contribute to developing a solid reading foundation. Read more about this in the authors introduction to the book (freely available to read through the Amazon look inside feature).
WORD LIST *Level 1 corresponds with Dolch Pre-Primer Vocabulary word list and includes additional sight words listed below:
Introductory - a, and, are, as, at, away, ball, be, bed, big, blue, box, can, come, Dan, down, find, for, fun, funny, go, have, he, help, here, his, house, I, in, is, it, Jen, jump, like, little, look, make, me, my, not, of, on, one, other, play, red, run, said, see, she, sun, the, them, they, this, three, to, toy, two, up, was, we, where, with yellow, you.
Advanced - Includes the words introduced in the introductory book and includes the following additional nouns: bird, boat, boy, car, day, doll, egg, father, girl, morning, mother, robin, water, window.
Interactive Activity Book - coming soon. This will further reinforce the nouns introduced in this leve
Revised Edition with TONS of new - easy to understand - useful training!
Portraits...Taking pictures of our friends and family - it's what we all want to master! Right?
However, when we think of doing "Portraits" the word alone is kind of scary! It sounds like it should be the province of professionals. We just want to do better pictures of our kids, our pets and our friends. Leave the "portraits" to the experts - right?
Wrong! YOU can get professional quality portraits too! It's easy! Once you know a few strategic portrait photography tips and techniques, your photos will almost instantly go from "That's nice," to "WOW - you did that?"
I've run a professional photo studio for over 20 years and here is a secret - getting top level quality portraits is easy, anyone can do it! Another thing I've learned is to teach YOU how YOU can do it!
Read through "Building A Portrait" (it's written in simple, easy to understand language with lots of example photos) and within an hour or so you will have so many "Ah Ha!" moments, you'll be giggling with glee. I know that sounds corny, but try it, you'll see what I mean.
Here's the thing - as a photographer whether you're a pro or an amateur with their first camera - it's your job to make your subjects look like a million bucks! In their portrait, they should look better than they've ever looked before! Now YOU can make that happen!
Here is the table of contents showing a bit of what is covered...
Introduction: Review - Neutral Density Filters Graduated Filters Backdrops How To Build A Portrait: Terminology And The Overall Shape Of The Photograph Size Matters Composition Tips: Make Sure Your Photographs Tell A Story Anti - Level Shoulders Sit Up Straight Use The "Rule Of Thirds" If It Makes Sense Fill The Frame Follow The Eyes Who is the star Focus On The Most Important Feature - The Eyes Depth Of Field Skin, Love It Or Leave It Bare Skin Continued Beauty: Women Should Look Sexy And Pretty, Men Should Appear Powerful The Symmetrical Face Sexism In Portrait Photography Here's A Really HARD Photo Tip Problem Area Fixes: Differently Sized Eyes The Crooked Nose Acne Scarred And Wrinkled Skin Here's A Photo Tip That May Require Some Begging Round and Chubby Faces The Neck Wattle Photography Clothing Tips The "Photographic Ground Modification System" Photo Exercises: Additional Photo Training:
"Building A Portrait" starts at the very beginning with something as simple as deciding on what to call your photo's shape and goes all the way through advanced concepts. You are unlikely to ever find a more thorough grounding in portrait photography techniques!
Beauty - This section is a bit more esoteric! Just what is beauty? You can't effectively show beauty in your portraits if you don't know what it IS. In this section we will examine what makes us think one person is beautiful and another isn't. These concepts are hardwired in us - and people respond!
In the "Problem Area Fixes" section, we learn how to correct for physical flaws and make our subjects look like a million bucks! Just because someone has a crooked nose, one eye larger than another, and is covered by acne - it's no reason why YOU can't get a good portrait! In fact, you will look for challenges like this because they are fun!
You'll discover what to do to "fix" a crooked nose, skin problems, wrinkles, round chubby faces (oblong faces with high cheekbones are considered beautiful in most cultures) and so on.
Check out this course volume and your portraits will improve almost immediately. Your "models" will thank you. Unless your "model" is the family pet... They won't thank you - they don't care!
Question... Have you ever had someone look at a portrait you've done and actually been moved to tears of joy? You will after reading and employing the techniques you'll learn in "Building A Portrait!"
