Books for Beginning Independent Reading
The following decodable booklists have been created to support beginning independent reading.
Decodable text is the type of text that focuses on the written code and presents words to students that follow the phonics concepts that they have been taught. Students are encouraged to use their phonics knowledge to decode (read) words rather than skip or guess words. Using decodable texts is a method that helps all and harms none for beginning readers. The use of decodable text provides a reliable pathway to moving students to accurately and successfully reading authentic literature of their choosing.
