How does the music make you feel? 

The decodable book uses the phase 2 sounds s, a, t, p, i, n. Help your child to point at each sound in the word to blend and segment the sounds together. Ask who, what and where questions to test understanding of the story. Can your child answer the comprehension questions at the end of the story? Use the communication mat provided below to support your child.
