Decodable readers are by far some of my favorite resources in kindergarten. I love how they provide explicit phonics and reading practice and students love building reading confidence and independence. And the first time a student successfully reads a book is absolutely priceless.
Decodable readers are designed to have sequenced phonics skills that are consistent for readers to provide purposeful reading practice. In these decodable readers, consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) words and sight words are used for students to apply what they are learning during phonics instruction.
These text in these books are stories (not just word family sentences) so they can be used for comprehension activities and are perfect to send home for at-home reading.
Use these readers in conjunction with your Science of Reading phonics instruction to help students transfer sounds to print while working on beginning reading skills.
