Product Description
VIDEO: K-2 Decodable Readers Overview

We’re happy to introduce this exciting new addition to our 1st grade 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. 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.

This is a GROWING BUNDLE. Currently, it only includes the first 21 decodable readers for weeks 1-21, but when it is completed, it will provide you 32 cute stories that contain the phonetic code taught each week of the program (weeks 1-32).

Because this is a work in progress, we are offering this GROWING BUNDLE at a discounted rate until all books are uploaded; due to Hurricane Harvey, the tentative completion date has been extended to March 31, 2018; on April 1, 2018, the price will go back to the regular rate. Additional books will be uploaded to TpT as they are completed; you'll be notified when the additional books are added, and all you have to do is just go re-download them from your "My Purchases" folder on TpT.
