Exciting. Engaging. Informative.
Seventy decodable books support your student to learn the letter-sound correspondences and high-utility words taught throughout the program.
Exciting, engaging, informative – the decodable books match the teaching sequence of skills and knowledge that supports students to put what has been learnt into practice. Your students have many opportunities to practise decoding and word recognition as they develop fluency.
Module One focuses on teaching common letter sounds of the alphabet and is accompanied by 30 decodable texts supporting the practice of sounds and letters, and high-utility words.
Three sets of engaging illustrated books follow the activities of the characters. Each set of 10 books features children living in different environments: rural, inner urban and suburban.
In Modules Two and Three, the texts are paired – informative and narrative – and follow the sequence of the phonic focus of each lesson in the Teacher Resource Book.
Teaching notes in the back of each decodable book focus on phonics, fluency and comprehension.
- Decodable content words or words with the phonic focus are identified.
- High-utility words from each text are identified.
- Accurate word reading to develop fluency is encouraged.
- Literal, inferential and evaluative comprehension questions are provided.
