I used to spend HOURS looking on the internet for quality nonfiction stories for my students to read.  Now that I know about the science of reading, I also want to address reading comprehension and use decodable stories.  When I found this nonfiction decodable set I was thrilled. It has exceeded my expectations!!!  I love how there are two versions for every story.  That make small group reading much easier to differentiate and scaffold. I highly recommend this set of decodable readers by Orton Gillingham Mama!”
