These decodable books are best used in a systematic, sequential, structured small group for phonics instruction. Scope & (phonics skill) Sequence is included. See my PD on how to teach this way at OR purchase this 6-hour PD recording at

Since Guided Phonics (not Guided Reading) is based on grouping students according to their phonics skills (not their reading level) I have created a Quick Placement Assessment (included in this product) so you can easily know where (which books) to begin instruction with each of your students for your phonics skill groups.

PLEASE NOTE: DECODABLE BOOKS ARE NOT LEVELED. They are written in a simple phonics skills to complex phonics skill progression. Guided Phonics (also known as Structured Literacy) is recommended for Emerging Readers aligned to the Science of Reading research, until they become Developing Readers and can decode accurate and fluently read with automaticity.

This product includes:

  • 20* Decodable Books (10 pages per black/white book, see preview of one book)
  • 1 3-minute video on how to assemble a book
  • 1 Quick Placement Assessment & Directions for Administration & Scoring
  • 1 Guided Phonics Decodables Scope & Sequence
  • 1 Detailed Scope & Sequence: Target Skill per Book (see preview)
  • 1 Detailed Scope & Sequence: Heart Words per Book (see preview)
  • 5 Heart Word Mapping Sheets
  • 4 Word Mapping Mats
  • 1 Binder Cover

*this file currently has 15 and the last 5 books will be added by Feb. 14.

Each Decodable Reader includes:

  • the target phonics skill
  • words with the new & past phonics skills taught
  • high interest story in a book format
  • black & white for low cost printing/copying 
  • HFW review
  • comprehension questions
  • I Can Read! Sentences review page
  • Background Building Vocabulary List
  • Take Away Sheet for independent R/W response (take away as in take to your seat, take to a station, take and put in your book bin, or take home for practice)

This resource is part 3 of an epic six part project, probably my largest and most significant project to date (besides the creation of my own children!) Here are the parts, the estimation of when they are coming out, and the prices. See Product Preview for phonics skills targeted in the Pink Decodables (part 1), Orange Decodables (part 2) and yellow (part 3) sets.

Part 1: Pink Set Books 1-20 BOOKS

Part 2: Orange Set Books 21-40 BOOK

Part 3: Yellow Set Books 41-60 BOOKS

Part 4: Pink Set Book Lesson Plans (releasing end of March)

Part 5: Orange Set Lesson Plans (releasing end of May)

PLEASE NOTE: Guided Phonics IS NOT THE SAME as Guided Reading. Students in Guided Phonics groups are grouped based on phonics skills, not reading levels. I created the Quick Placement Assessment (included in this product) so you can easily know which Decodable Book to begin Guided Phonics instruction with each of your students.

If you have questions, please leave them in the Q&A for this product and I'll be sure to answer them.
