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.

As a first year Kindergarten teacher, I was in a panic trying to figure out how to teach the foundations of reading. This club saved my sanity. Not only did I get structured plans but the advice and knowledge of how to apply it all and create my own lessons in the future. This club let me learn with others and improve myself as a teacher. Truly a blessing.

Verified customer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

These games are great! I love that there is an assessment with it so I can really see what skills my students need more practice with. Once they learn the games they are able to do them independently as well.

Verified customer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The 1st & 2nd Grade Literacy Club is the perfect supplement for any teacher to up their literacy instruction. My students love the leveled monthly passages, and I love catching up on the recorded ones available through the website. I have used the Intervention Central resources to differentiate for individual students and small groups. I really can't say enough about the amazing resources and like-minded community!

My file isn’t printing correctly. How do I fix this?

The vast majority of printing problems can be fixed with the “Print as Image” solution in Adobe Reader! Learn more about how to do that here HERE.

Where can I learn more about your literacy products and how to use them?

We have a free catalog that walks you through my main resources. It can help you decide which resources are right for you and your students! You can grab the catalog HERE.

I teach in a split-grade class (i.e. 1st and 2nd). How should I select products for my students?

Alison always recommends getting the lower of the two grade levels. So if you teach in a 1st and 2nd grade class, get a 1st grade version. You can always differentiate in small groups or 1:1 to challenge your more advanced students!

I teach in Canada and am looking to buy some of your literacy products. How does the Canadian curriculum align to the U.S. curriculum?

Our Canadian customers tell us that it’s best to purchase one grade level down. If you teach first grade, for example, try a Kindergarten product. You can also check the preview file of any resource in our TpT store to see example lessons to help you make your decision!

Huge assortment of decodable texts and I love that since they are paper we can highlight different skills for them to use as they decode!

Marla F.

I love using materials from Learning at the Primary Pond. I am always happy with the quality of the products! My students have really enjoyed the first few stories we have done. I am looking forward to using more of them in my small reading group.

Inspired to Read

Love these! I've been using these with my kinder guy who's learning to read. They are so easy to use and organized well.

Jana B.

This is a great resource. It can be used for whole group teaching or for centers. I find this product more useful for centers. We use the QPS on our students and group them by needs when it comes to reading. This is great to use to help students meet those needs during intervention and can also be sent home as homework for extra practice. I highly recommend this resource.

Rae-Lynn B.

This resource is very well organized. I used this for sending reading home. The decodable texts were engaging and my students liked them.
