Products in this Bundle (4)
This bundle contains four sets of pre-decodable and decodable non-fiction texts for beginning readers (a total of 18 individual stories). All texts contain photos mostly taken by my husband or myself. All decodable texts also contain high-frequency sight words and story words that are systematically introduced with a controlled vocabulary that builds from one text to the next. While there are other decodable texts available for emerging readers, this series is unique in combining systematic phonics/decodable text with non-fiction topics and photographs.
- Set 1 includes three pre-decodable texts for learning the alphabet (Alphabet Animals) and color words.
- Set 2 includes six decodable non-fiction phonics stories focused on short vowel words (CVC), such as cat, dog, hen, pig, and duck (Books 1-6).
- Set 3 includes five decodable non-fiction phonics stories focused on consonant blends (with short vowel words) (CCVC and CVCC), such as slug, frog, clam, nest, and pond (Books 7-11).
- Set 4 includes four decodable non-fiction phonics stories focused on long vowels with magic/silent e (CVCe), such as race, bike, nose, and dune (Books 12-15).
The materials in this bundle align to state standards for kindergarten and early first grade. There is a of each story, which you can print and staple on the left-hand side, or use to display with a projector or TV. There is also a of each story, if you have a printer that can print two-sided. Then you can make a little booklet of each story, stapling down the dotted line in the middle.
Because these books contain actual photos, rather than drawings, they can be suitable both for elementary students and for teens and adults learning to read in English.
Most state standards include a focus on reading informational text, even in kindergarten and first grade, but finding materials that are suitable for emerging readers can be challenging. These decodable non-fiction texts are designed to fill this gap.
