Play Roly 6: A playful start to decoding words on your own
BEGIN EARLY READING
What you’ll need
A device to play Play Roly videos, the letter sound videos below, your book or pages from earlier Play Roly activities, your Roly-ball, and a marker pen.
How to play
- Sit about six feet apart with your book and access to the video sound letters below
- Write the words for today in your child’s book or on a blank page
- Play the Play Roly 6 video and roll Roly back and forth
- Ask your child to match the letters in his or her book with the letter sound videos, play each letter sound once, and afterward, roll your Roly-ball back and forth and remind your child the way Roly exaggerates the 3 letter-sounds, without breaks or breaths between his sounds
- After the three letter sound videos have played, sing the three sounds a second time on your own the way Roly sings them with no pauses or breaks between the sounds—help your child remember the letter sounds if needed
- After each word, ask your child what the letter sounds are saying
- Start with the “sit sad sad” and “mad mud men” videos (write the words in your book)
- Next, do the “fat fin fit” and “rat run red” videos (write the words in your book)
- Finally, read more than one word per page in Story 1 and Story 2 (write these in your book)
- If your child cannot sound out the words with help two times, we recommend you start the Play Roly 1 videos again for more practice
What to expect
Do one video session per day. Have high-fiving fun. Move through all the videos until your child can read stories 1 and 2. Congratulations—your child is starting to read—just like Roly! We expect most children will need to return to Play Roly 1 several times to gain extra practice. Don’t worry if this happens, your child is building confidence ready to become a reader
