Printable leveled book list
(9 days ago) IMPORTANT UPDATE: As I learn more about the science of reading and how our children learn to read, I have come to the conclusion that leveled books are not the best reading material for brand-new readers. Instead, they need a steady diet of high quality decodable books so they learn to pay attention to the letters and sounds right from the beginning.
Phonics books for ee and oo words
(6 days ago) This set has three books with ee words, one book with oo as in book, and two books with oo as in moon. Each book starts like this. Your child should read the first page by saying the sound of oo rather than naming the letters. After reading the first page, your child can practice reading the sound with the first big word.
