Quick Post: Book Share–Phonics and Word Study for Struggling Readers

Looking for decodable texts for your older struggling readers? Those books and resources are hard to find … but this book has it all. Phonics and Word Study for Struggling Readers Grades 4-6 has been a great resource for me when working with struggling or dyslexic readers. It provides decodeable text targeting phonics patterns and vowel/letter combinations. The stories are interesting and not babyish so they appeal to students at the 4th grade level and beyond. It’s a great way for students to practice reading words with target phonics letter/sound patterns, and it also has an array of reinforcement activities for homework or follow-up after lessons. It’s a great addition to any phonics program, and the National Reading Panel recommends that decodable text should be a part of any sound phonics program. Click on the picture or linked text, and they will take you to The price is right!
