Brightly Beaming 
Steps to Reading Program

Step Four:
Story of the Week
Adaptable for Ages 4 - 7
by Katrina Lybbert

Curriculum Information

This curriculum follows the Sound of the Week curriculum.  It is based on a story each week that children can learn to read themselves.  The stories have been chosen from children's books with simple vocabulary.  Part of this step involves learning many sight words.  If you have followed the first three steps of this program, your child will have a good phonics base.  By learning both phonics and sight words, your child will have a great start in reading.  If you want more helps for learning to read, check out my recommendations for phonics and beginning reading.

***Please note that this curriculum is under construction currently.  Links will be added as often as possible.  Thanks for your patience.

 *Curriculum Outline*

This program will cover a year of learning.  I have created a schedule that lasts 40 weeks.  You are welcome to adapt the schedule for your own family.  This is just a suggestion.  Have fun with it!
