Today's Reading Tip: Must Have Book-Making Words

If you were to go into any teacher's classroom at my school, you would likely find the Making Words Book by Patricia Cunning.  I first discovered this book while in my credential program at San Diego State University, though I did not realize it's full potential until I became a Reading Specialist.


This book gives you activities to use with students in grades (K-3, though I have used it up to 6th with struggling readers) to help build their phonics and spelling skills.  There are no other additional products you need to buy, you simply create them yourself.  If your child is an early reader or a fluent reader with some difficulty spelling or deciphering new words, then this is the book for you.  It helps your child learn to build words by pieces and helps them to see the connection between short base words and words with prefixes and suffixes.

This series also comes in Making Big Words for students who are more advanced (3rd and up):


As well as Making More Words which is an additional supplement to Making Words:
