Sunshine Phonics Decodable Books
Australian Series with real stories using words that children can read!
A Decodable Program to help all children learn to read
The program teaches children phonics skills in a sequential and systematic way so that they can learn the sounds (phonemes) and the letters that represent them (graphemes) and then practise and apply this knowledge through reading a text that makes sense. This ensures that every beginning reader will experience success in their reading from their very first book!
