Beginning Readers: ELL words

Reminder: The short “e” sound is in the beginning of the word “egg”.

Recommendation: An adult or older sibling should read the main parts of the story, pausing to allow the early reader to read the bold words.

Dell fell.

Why was it that Dell fell?

Dell fell because of a smell.

Dell fell because of the smell of a shell.

Dell fell because of the smell of a shell of an animal whose name it is hard to spell.

Would you like me to tell the name of the animal whose name is hard to spell, whose shell was the reason that Dell fell?

Why, it’s the Llanos long-nosed armadillo, of course.
