I became frustrated with finding fun decodable books for my early readers that could be sent home and were affordable. We use Fountas/Pinnell and Rigby readers which I LOVE! But sending them home is always a risk - Will they be returned? Will they be cared for at home and protected from food spills and dog bites?
So, after much thought and trial and error, I created this set of decodable phonics readers that are affordable and filled with adorable pictures that make it easy for my students to want to read! Because there is both a color and grayscale version, they can be used at school and sent home with no regrets!
The grayscale version can be easily copied and sent home - no need to return to school!
This packet contains ONLY the readers. There are no Word Work activities included.
Before using these readers, students must have some foundational phonics skills as well as a base of high frequency words. Students must have some knowledge of how to blend sounds together to make words. The high frequency words used in this packet are based on the Fountas and Pinnell guided reading list. These phonics readers are meant to be a SUPPLEMENT to your present, research based reading system and are NOT intended to be a program in itself.
