PLD’s Decodable First Reading Books

Year Level: Foundation, Year 1 & 2

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’s recommends the introduction of decodable reading books within Term 2. Decodable Reading Books should continue into Semester 2 Year 1. Decodable readers typically should be viewed as a short-term resource, until students develop fluency and word attack skills.

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

 

Allocating, Tracking & Sorting PLD Decodable Reading Books

Research repeatedly reports that the gains are greatest from the initial years of schooling when students are first learning to read. In terms of allocating reading books, completing the 3 minute Early Reading Profile screen, within PLD’s Screening and Tracking Manuals is recommended.

The books are supplied with identification labels to assist with storage and organisation. The books, which are available only in sets and cannot be purchased as individual copies, 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. Did you know?

    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. […]
