Are your students struggling with reading words with double consonants or where s spells /z/?
Do you find yourself with decodable readers that are less science of reading and more predictable text?
Are your decodables lacking a story? Do they use words/patterns your students haven’t learned yet, making it more challenging for your students than it needs to be?
Are you unsure of how to incorporate science of reading principles into your classroom? Wondering about how a science of reading-aligned small group looks?
Do you find yourself needing more reading and skill practice for your students?
Do you want your students to see themselves in their classroom materials, regardless of who they are?
Let us prep your small groups for you – and give you an easy-to-follow, simply-explained, diverse and inclusive, complete set for science of reading-aligned small groups and independent work!
Unlike some of those other decodables, ours only use words that fit the skills that have been introduced in our scope and sequence so far. We use high-frequency words that fit the phonics skill (or previous skills) and minimize those “tricky” words.
Our decodable readers offer an actual storyline to practice fluency right alongside the decoding practice and three levels of comprehension questions to meet your readers, no matter where they’re at. And for your older students who struggle with phonics? Our stories are high-interest, but easier readability for those students who need it. We’ve even included a set of higher-level thinking questions for those students who don’t need the extra reminder that they’re below level.
Perfect for primary teachers, our decodable readers provide you with everything you need to teach small groups and extend the learning into centers with independent work and word mapping activities. Each phonics skill comes with two readers, one set of word cards, one word mapping mat, and one no prep independent skill practice worksheet.
Not only that, but we’ve included an easy-to-follow routine that fits every book – with a four-step phonological awareness warm-up, a set of decodable and high-frequency words to map prior to reading, and a 7-page reader.
Follow that with the at-their-level comprehension page of your choice (select one of three) to ensure that your students are thinking about the story while they are reading and you have a complete small group lesson plan – at your fingertips.
And don’t even worry about your literacy centers – once your students understand word mapping, they can do this as a buddy center with the included mapping mats and word cards that follow each phonics skill.
Introduce the repeated independent activities that will spiral throughout the larger series and your students will have another engaging, easy-to-use, no prep activity for literacy centers.

“These decodable readers are PERFECT!! I was looking for the perfect decodable readers because leveled readers really just don’t work, especially with my lower students. These are perfect and the differentiated comprehension questions really take them to the next level!”
“Love these books and resources. I use these with my small group (lower-level readers). These are engaging and just right for my emergent readers. Thank you so much for a wonderful resource!!!!”
“These were so cute and fun. My kid’s loved reading the stories and the extra cards and activities were perfect! Excited to see more. Thank you.”
This will be part of a year-long series. Other phonics skills include or will include, but are not limited to:
