Mat Enhanced audio with music, sound affects and professional actors.
"Mat" is the fifth book in the series of beginning readers from ReadingTeacher.com.
New Sound in Book 5
New Word in Book 5:
The 80 books in the series use systematic phonics to ensure that your beginning readers will get a great start in reading proficiency.
The books begin at a very simple level and gradually introduce new sounds and words until students have mastered all 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language.
The books should be read in order, because the sounds and words in each book build upon those learned in previous books. It is important that students master each book before moving on to the next.
Each new word throughout the program is repeated at least 5 times in the book in which it first appears and 5 more times in the next 10 books.
Mat the Rat calls Sam to watch him paint. Sam poses thinking Mat is painting him. Instead, Mat paints a picture of himself and proudly shows it to his friend. Sam gets angry when he sees that the picture is not of himself. He takes the brush and paints a rat trap over Mat’s picture. Then Mat gets so angry he throws paint all over Sam.
