We are very fond of the decodable passages, because these can also be used when working with dyslexic children. Many decodable stories included in commercial reading programs are redundant and lack the authenticity of a real reading experience. We have tried to create stories that are more authentic as well as being 100% decodable. That means you can discuss the meaning of the story after reading it, building your students’ comprehension skills. These stories are also more cognitively demanding and use slightly more sophisticated language than typical decodable stories. This is an opportunity to better develop your students’ oral language skills. In some cases, it will require repeated readings of a passage for students to understand it fully.
