I'm doing a major revision of the book, eliminating the first short i pages, reordering many of the short vowel pages, and revising many of the word lists on the picture/word pages. The words and pictures will be the same, but I'm setting it up so there's less jumping around from one short vowel to the next. I'm going to try to add a section to the instructions explaining how to integrate reading and spelling with this book and how to prepare students for the next level by teaching the patterns from Part 2 of the sound story.
Sound Story Part 1 Videos
I've added all of the videos for Part 1 of A Sound Story About Audrey And Brad to the Sound City Reading website at www.soundcityreading.net. You'll be able to listen to the sound story and sounds for all of the letters of the alphabet. You can find them under VIDEOS on the menu bar. Each section is recorded separately. The videos are in a portfolio, which is one way to group videos on the Vimeo website. They are arranged in the same order in which the letters appear in the sound story. I re-recorded the first videos so now the voice quality for those videos will be better.
