Explicit phonemic awareness and phonics instruction come together in our new K-2 foundational skills curriculum!

Decodable Books

Authentic, engaging stories with beautiful illustrations.

Decodable readers provide accessible content for students to apply what they are learning during phonics instruction. As teachers support students in developing their word recognition skills, systematic instruction in both phonemic awareness and phonics is important. The transfer of sounds to print takes place when students engage in phonics activities and apply what they are learning to connected text reading and writing.
