Green Book, the third entry in our Carden Reader series, introduces vowel combinations with r and w. It adds more Carden controls to those experienced in Red Book and Blue Book. Students improve their ability to read sentences rhythmically, instead of word-by-word. Green Book’s lack of illustrations benefits students by removing possible clues to the content of the story and focusing attention on the experience of reading as a transfer of thought and ideas from the page to the imagination of the reader. Lessons built around this book aren’t limited to simply reading. The teacher’s edition, Green Book Questions for Developing Comprehension and Building a Speaking Vocabulary, provides detailed lessons that drive vocabulary development, experiences of grammar as a tool of comprehension. The proper use of questions and sentence analysis increase the speaking and reading vocabulary of the students. The spelling and grammar rules the children master serve to bring them an understanding of the structure of words. Click here to view an unrehearsed demonstration lesson taught from Green Book.
