What educators are saying

I used this with my 2nd grade students that were still reading at a kinder level that needed more books to read.
I used these as my decodable readers during virtual learning, creating a Google Form with the comprehension questions at the end of each story for the end of the week.





VIDEO: K-2 Decodable Readers Overview

We’re happy to introduce this exciting new addition to our Kindergarten phonics & spelling curriculum – decodable readers, written by Heather Watson & illustrated by Ashley Watson from Watson Works! As children learn to read, decodable readers are instrumental in building fluency and developing good reading strategies, so it was important for us to be able to offer these readers for our teachers. We sincerely want children to be become strong, confident readers by using our phonics & spelling program, and when a child can read a decodable book on his own, he/she gains a real feeling of success and accomplishment, resulting in an even greater motivation to read.

For each week of the program, we’re creating 1 decodable reader that reviews the phonics skills, spelling words, and high frequency words for that week. (Note: Kindergarten decodable readers, however, don’t begin until week 10 in order to allow time for students to become familiar with the program and learn enough letters and sounds to be able to form enough words to create a book.) 

We are offering these readers in both color & blackline printable PDF formats, as well as in eBook formats so that teachers have the option of printing and assembling individual booklets for students or using them with their computers, tablets, and other smart mobile devices.
