PLD’s Decodable Reading Books Catalogue

Year Level: Foundation, Year 1 & 2, Years 3 to 6

Decodable readers present text that can be read using the decoding skills students have acquired. In the context of reading, students are then able to practice the phonic concepts that have been taught explicitly and systematically. For age-appropriate Foundation students, PLD recommends the introduction of decodable reading books within Term 2. Decodable reading books should typically continue into Semester 2 Year 1. Decodable readers should be viewed as a short-term resource, until students develop increased fluency and word attack skills.

These modern and engaging decodable reading book sets have been hand-picked by Diana Rigg to align with PLD’s evidence-based Structured Synthetic Phonics program. The decodable reading books range can also be presented to older students who are slow to progress or who lack fluency.

Allocating, Tracking & Sorting PLD’s Decodable Reading Books

Research repeatedly reports that the gains are greatest during the initial years of schooling when students are first learning to read. In terms of identifying which decodable reading books to assign to students, teachers can administer a quick early reading screen to determine which ranges are most appropriate.  The early reading screens are located within PLD’s Screening and Tracking Manuals.

PLD’s downloadable identification labels will assist with organising the large range of decodable reading books. The books, which are available only in sets, are a cost-effective option for schools to modernise their early reading material and achieve a positive start to reading for the students in their care.

    Private: How do the PLD Early Reading Profiles link to the phonics and high frequency words teaching sequence and book sets?

    The Early Reading Profile Screens reflect two areas of early reading: Accuracy (or the student’s ability to ‘crack the code’ and verbalise the words). Automaticity (or the student’s ability to read the word as a full word and in a manner that is efficient and automatic). Early readers typically decode the majority of phonics-based words. […]
