ReadBright Decodable Readers

Embark on an exciting reading journey with ReadBright’s Decodable Books (Kindergarten – Second Grade).  Four sets of meticulously crafted books designed to instill a love for reading. Supported by ReadBright’s effective structured literacy program, aligned with the latest Science of Reading research and incorporating key elements of the Orton Gillingham approach, this collection of little books provides young readers with an integral resource for practice and mastery of literacy skills. 

Key Features:

The decodable readers align to the systematic scope and sequence of the ReadBright program, and these books can be integrated with other reading programs or used independently as a valuable, freestanding resource to reinforce reading skills and promote fluency and comprehension.

Engaging Stories: Enjoy 12-page storybooks that captivate with vibrant illustrations and interesting narratives. The books seamlessly integrate the skills, rules, and high frequency words taught at each level of the ReadBright program, making learning effective and enjoyable.

Phonics Mastery: Each decodable reader is strategically formulated and scaffolded, containing only words and skills that students have already been taught, enabling repeated practice and learning progression.

Level Two enhances students’ ability to decode new words with more complex vowels, focusing on Magic e (vCe), Walking Talking Vowels (vowel teams) and other special rules such as soft c and g, sticky sounds (i.e. old,ind, ild), and the sounds of y. Students begin reading multisyllabic words aligned to the targeted phonics rule.

Cumulative Learning: Skills are reinforced through cumulative learning. Each reader builds on earlier books, providing a continuous review of words and phonetic concepts.

Comprehension Assessment: Comprehension questions at the end of each book ensure that early readers are comprehending the meaning behind the words.

Drills for Reinforcement: Each book includes drills to reinforce featured phonics skills and previously taught high frequency words to solidify learning, ensuring mastery of foundational reading concepts.

Ideal for:

  • Beginner Readers: Establishes foundational reading
  • ESL Learners: Assists in expanding vocabulary and enhancing overall literacy comprehension
  • Dyslexic Learners: Supports the sound-symbol connections through explicit, targeted phonics lessons
  • Older/Struggling Readers: Fills gaps in foundational reading skills, leading to fluency and confident reading
