Reading Stars Phonics Phase 5 Pack contains a complete set of reading books to support Phase 5 of a phonics programme. In total there are 85 books.
It contains both fiction and non-fiction titles, on a range of topics and text types. These books correspond to Phase 5 of the Letters and Sounds programme, and match any phonics programme that follows the Letters and Sounds order to introduce new phonemes and graphemes. The words are all decodable which means they are made up of phonics that children can put together to decode the word
The 85 books cover:
49 'build' titles that gradually introduce the new graphemes for reading (Phase 5a), alternative pronunciations of known graphemes (Phase 5b) and alternative spellings for phonemes (Phase 5c), as well as the new CEWs met in this phase.
36 'practice' titles that offer lots of opportunity for children to consolidate their new knowledge. 12 draw on everything met up until the end of Phase 5a, then the remaining titles draw on everything met up until the end of Phase 5c.
Together this pack of books offers a structured way of developing children's progression in reading.
These books are part of Ransom's Reading Stars Phonics series:
225 fully decodable phonics readers that offer progression on a week-by-week basis.
Fiction and non-fiction as well as a variety of text types all supported by beautiful illustrations and photographs.
Diverse stories and characters that ensure that every child has the chance to 'find' themselves in the pages of the books.
The variety of books needed (easier, harder, longer, shorter) to cater for all abilities and attitudes.
Real and rewarding reading experiences - the limitations of decodable language do not get in the way of quality books that foster a love of reading.
