Information on PLD’s Decodable Reading Book Sets 

Decodable texts are an essential part of a SSP approach and have been proven to be an effective conduit between phonics and reading. Decodable texts support readers by presenting decodable words that correspond to the phonic concepts they are learning in class. In this way, students practise applying their phonic knowledge and blending skills, and typically develop strong reading accuracy. 

For the majority of students, decodable reading books should typically be viewed as a short term resource (usually for the first 18 months) until students develop fluency and word attack skills. For a proportion of students, decodable reading material will need to continue to be provided beyond the junior primary

Regardless of the year level, all students being allocated decodable reading books should be screened each term using The Early Reading Screen. The reading placement test will direct the correct level of reading material and also check that reading progress is being made. The reading assessment is located within the Foundation, Year 1 & 2 and the Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 Screening and Tracking Manuals.

Organising the PLD Decodable Reading Books Organisation labels have been designed to assist in the categorisation and storage of the book sets. The labels are available to download HERE
