Lil is in a band, her brother Sam plays in the group with her. Sam is running late for the show and needs to grab a cab. Sal is there to help him out. Will he make it there on time, or will Lil be mad? Your student will recognize the phone messages that you can read to them! This book is loaded with vocabulary like tiff, jig, and gig; perfect for vocabulary discussions.

It contains 28 pages of short a and short i CVC words with a sprinkling of double final consonants as in tiff. Since double consonants are easily decoded, and we are not asking them to spell, I feel students can manage these words.
