Teach Your Child 100 Words to Read, Write, Spell, and Draw is a cute book of words that every child should master by age 10! If your child is using Dyslexia Games Series A and/or Teach Your Child to Read, Write, and Spell: 100 Easy Bible Verses, this little gem of a spelling and reading book (among art and writing) is a perfect follow-up to that.

100 Words To Read, Write, Spell, & Draw is also perfect to use with beginning readers, struggling readers, struggling spellers, and children with dyslexia. 100 Words uses the Dyslexic Font.

This book teaches the 100 most common words through cute poems about animals. Your child will learn how to read and spell words like: are, blue, clouds, house, eight, eat, snow, snack, wild, and many more in a fun way. Kids might not even consider it as school learning because the book is not only fun but is smaller than your average workbook making it different from other schoolbooks.

 The first animal your child will meet is a grey squirrel. For beginning or struggling readers it's suggested that you read the poem four times, pointing to each word as you read it. When you get to the 3rd and 4th reading have your child read along with you.
The next set of Grey Squirrel pages has mom read the poem again. The child can read it again as well if he likes. Once done reading have your little one point and say each word and color the word in. I have Lance say each letter as he colors them in, "Y-O-U, you".  And your child gets a little science too with drawing the squirrel's habitat!
The next Grey Squirrel pages has your child fill in the blank.

Another idea with using this book is have your child memorize the poems and have some read aloud books on hand about squirrels.

The next animal is a zebra!

Platypus pages. This animal would be fun to research more.

All these animals can be found and researched using the show Wild Kratts too!

 In the back of the book are some Fun-Schooling Practice Time Pages.

Some words like kangaroo and raccoon may be hard to fit in the spaces for some kiddos. Make it fun and challenge the child to write small but also let them know that it's okay if the word goes into the next box. This is their book and it's absolutely okay because they are unique and so is the book they are creating here!

With the pages shown below your child can write short sentences or a story like, "See the shark has sharp teeth" or make shark plural and talk about adding the "s". The child can write, "See the sharks sharp teeth?"

Have fun with it. Depending the your child's age see how many words your child can use in one sentence, can he use most of the words on one page to write a short story?!?!

Your child can draw and write, creating their own little stories and poems making their own little book!

Wow, for a little book it's packed with a lot of learning. Your child will use art, logic, and animals to learn how to spell - all in a fun and enjoyable way.

Right now I'm having Lance use this book - some words are review but others like eight and please he still needs to learn. So we are using it as a fun way to review words and sneak some of the ones he hasn't mastered in his homeschool day.

About the author: Anna Brown
Anna is 15, the oldest girl in a family of 10! She loves art, music, animals, nature, sister-time, babysitting, baking, and serving as a missionary in Ukraine. She has a baking ministry here.

Anna has Dyslexia and learned to read when she was nine after being the first child to use Dyslexia Games.
Anna majored in art from age 5 to 9 because she was unable to read and write. She has contributed artwork to the following books:

A Day Like Tomorrow
Teach Yourself to Draw: Puppies, Playful Pets, and Forest Animals
To Wear or Not to Wear
Dyslexia Games Series B
Teach Yourself to Read, Write, and Spell 100 Words.

Having dyslexia allows Ann to think in 3D and helps her to have a big imagination. Though reading and writing sometimes makes her tired after a few chapters, she loves books, and she loves creative writing.

Her latest book is full of cute little poems about animals to help children learn to read, write, and spell. Anna enjoys creating books for other kids with dyslexia and learning challenges. Her books are so much fun that they are becoming popular with homeschoolers in general, not just dyslexics.

Here are some of the books that Anna has helped with!

  1. Every time I visit, I love seeing all the different uses for these journals. I'm still in prayer over possibly implementing them in the coming school year, but we have so many changes unfolding in our lives that I'm not sure I'm ready for the challenge :)

    1. I love how they are flexible. You don't have to use them daily. I am really liking her spelling books. I'm using them with Ethan and Lance to reinforce words and learn some of the ones that have slipped through the cracks :)

      Praying for you sweet friend!
