Decodable Readers Now Available at the Smiths Falls Public Library

Decodable readers are now available at the Smiths Falls Public Library, thanks to support and resources from International Dyslexia Association Ontario

What are decodable readers? 

A decodable reader is a book that contains words made of letter-sounds, and spelling and morphological patterns (e.g. prefixes & suffixes) that a child has already learned. Decodable books can be an important part of a structured literacy approach for beginning or struggling readers as they allow for lots of practice with specific words and sounds, allowing the student to read without guessing. Reading decodable text helps build fluency and confidence.
