Easy Peasy Decodable Text Routine:

  • Teach nondecodable, high-frequency sight words
  • Have the students read the title, browse, and then discuss what story is about
  • Students read a page silently, then read the page aloud
  • Blend decodable words and refer to the Sound/Spelling Cards as necessary
  • Repeat this procedure for each page
  • Respond to the story
  • Students should discuss hard words
  • Students should retell the story and respond to questions by pointing to the answers.
  • Reread decodable book (partner reading, choral, turn-taking, and the like) to build fluency
