- Our Phonics Booklets are for students in K-3 and children with dyslexia. Each booklet focuses on an individual phonic pattern giving your child a chance to practice that pattern in isolation.
- There is no particular sequence for these booklets; you can select the individual ones your child needs to work on.
- All booklets are available for purchase individually or as discounted bundles.
- These 'bite-sized' booklets have just enough pages to keep your child engaged without feeling intimidated. They focus on phonics-based, decodable words with short vowels that your child can easily sound out to become a successful and confident reader.
- An excellent resource for English Language Learners (ELL/ESL). Each page has a picture that helps your child relate to the word and understand its meaning. Engage your child in a discussion or ask questions about the word and the picture to help them understand the word and also to develop reading comprehension.
- Master reading - one booklet at a time!

Each page has a picture that helps your child relate to the word and understand its meaning. Engage your child in a discussion or ask questions about the word and the picture to help them understand the word and also to develop reading comprehension.
Encourage your child to read each booklet several times. Remember, repeated reading helps build reading fluency. Keep in mind, however, that the goal is to teach your child to actually decode or READ the sentences, not memorize them. So if you feel your child is memorizing the sentences due to repeated reading, it's time to move on to another booklet - but come back to this one again later for review.
These booklets make excellent first readers once a child can sound out the alphabet. So to develop an interest in reading, print the booklets and leave them around the house so your child can read them independently as well.
