What are decodable books?
Decodable books are texts that are written with a controlled text that is highly decodable based on the phonics taught so far. Each book will have a decodability of 70% or higher. Most of the books fall within the 80%-90% decodability range.
Each book builds upon previous skills. Within these texts, students will be practicing decoding and encoding. Blending phonemes practice is built into each text.
Are these decodable books research-based?
You may already know that these decodable texts have also been published by our partners at Hand2Mind. We are thrilled to share that both UFLI and The Reading League have added these texts to their recommended list of materials!
These decodable texts here on TpT have the same texts, lesson plans, student response pages… everything that you will find in the Hand2Mind product. So you can rest assured, these texts and lessons are research-based. If your district is looking for a Science of Reading-aligned adoption, you may wish to share this news with your administration.

In which order should these books be taught?
These books were intended to build upon each other. For example, the CVC Digraph books build upon the previous set of books. So after your student finishes with Digraph book #20, they will move on to the Blends book #1 and so on… Here is the order to follow:
- Alphabet Books
- CVC Decodable Books
- CVC Decodable Digraph Books
- CVC Decodable Blends Books
- CVCe Decodable Books
- Blends & Digraph CVCe Decodable Books
- Ending Digraph and Blends Decodable Books
- R Controlled Vowels Decodable Books
- Vowel Teams Decodable Books
- Diphthongs Decodable Books
How do I determine which books to begin with?
Your starting point will be different depending on the students’ needs. If you are introducing these decodable books to students who have mastered CVC words, you may want to begin instruction with the next set of decodable books. Please note, you may need to explicitly teach some of the sight words that your students have not learned yet.
