Frequently Asked Questions:

What scope and sequence or program do these texts follow?

You can use these decodable texts with any phonics program. You can view the skills covered in each book, as well as the sequence of the skills, in the free preview file.

Will these books match my high frequency word instruction?

Your students can be successful reading these decodable readers even if your high frequency word instruction is not a 100% match. Each lesson plan lists out all the high frequency words / irregular words covered in the text, so you can pre-teach any words that students do not already know.

Will this cover all my phonics instruction?

No. These decodable texts are meant to supplement a phonics program, not replace one. You will still need explicit, systematic phonics lessons to teach each sound / pattern. If you need a complete program, check out From Sounds to Spelling (available off TpT).

Are these decodable texts the same ones in your phonics program, From Sounds to Spelling?

No - they are different! They will work nicely with the program if you find yourself needing more decodable texts.

Why are the Kindergarten and 1st grade texts available in a book format AND passage format, but the 2nd grade texts are available only in a passage format?

Typically, 2nd grade students need less picture support. The 2nd grade passages do have illustrations, but they are included in a 1-page format to save you time and paper.
