Decodable Readers for Short Vowels

  1. ALL decodable readers include READING COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS. Choose the one-page format or book form:
    • 32 colorful and engaging decodable readers for emergent and early readers. Each 8-page book builds upon the previous book to include all phonics skills in Level 1 of the Orton Gillingham approach. **See all skills included below.
    • 32 corresponding one-page versions of the printable, decodable readers described above. You print out a copy of these to have for all of your students to read if you don’t want to use the book format.
    • Teachers can use the one-page versions of the phonics reads to track errors, to use as paired readings, or to have options for your students!

Science of Reading: Combining language and decoding for reading comprehension!

Each of the 32 decodable passages includes reading comprehension questions to keep your students engaged and on track with comprehension. These include Common Core standards like illustrating, details, characters, setting, inference, and more!

There is little to NO PREPNO CUTTING REQUIRED! Just print the books double-sided (my printer says “Print on both sides, Flip sheets on short edge), fold, and your student is ready to read. You can print the decodable books in color or black and white. If you want to ensure the pages stay together, you can staple the center.
