The Key Word

[For children]

Chad looked up from his seat at Table 2 as the children at Table 1 began to read. He liked to hear them. They read fast and tied the words together so that the stories were very interesting. He wished he could read that well.

Chad sighed as he turned the page in his primary reader. By the time he sounded out each word in a sentence and got to the period at the end he couldn't remember what he had read. The teacher said that he would remember better if he looked for the key word, but that was too much bother.

Later that day he asked if he couldn't be in Group 1 for reading.
