Each story is exactly 100 words.
A child’s language and literacy development is a big deal—for all of us! So why do we start with something as small as a 100-word story?
For one thing, it keeps a story simple and manageable. A child quickly reaches “the end” and feels a sense of accomplishment right away. But it’s more than that. When we kept a story small, we realized that structures stood out and speech practice focused. Little felt so very big!
100-word stories are also great for practicing reading fluency, measuring reading accuracy, assessing speech fluency, and facilitating repeated reading exercises.
