Level 1: Decodable Readers
- The Up-Words Reading™ Level 1 Decodable Readers (set of 53) are a unique set of books that allow ample practice with each new phonetic sound and sight word introduced in the Up-Words Reading™ program. In addition to being fun and engaging, these readers are perfectly aligned with the specific skills targeted in each daily Up-Words Reading™ lesson. In these readers, students are never asked to read a word they have not previously been taught to decode or identify. Moreover, unlike many other programs, the Up-Words Reading™ Decodable Readers follow a recurring cast of characters through linear story lines which often span multiple books, to keep students interested and curiosity piqued. Therefore, the student improves reading rate, accuracy and comprehension as s/he progresses through the series. Age-appropriate comprehension questions are included to enable teachers to target memory and sequencing skills, as well as answering higher-order reasoning questions.
