These beautifully illustrated decodable books are the next step up - little chapter books to engage children with the antics of the Smith twins and more friends of Pip and Tim. 


Each book focus on split digraphs - a-e as in tale, e -e as in theme, i-e as in shine, o-e as in hope and u-e as in tune.  More alternative digraphs are introduced - alternative phonemes for c when followed by an e, i or y (nice, city, cycle) and g as in orange, gigantic, gym. 


Morphology of the suffix ed - 3 sounds - ed as in expected, /d/ as in disappeared and /t/ as in jumped


Homophones are featured in A Strange Tale.  It also includes a game to apply and practise the children's growing knowledge.

    We're dedicated to bridging the gap between evidence-based research and the teaching of reading, spelling and writing.


    With training that aligns with the science of reading, teachers can understand and teach the English spelling system for both reading and writing with confidence and success.
