Decodable Books

Decodable books are for students who need reinforce the reading skills they are learning.  Each of the books covers a particular letter or pattern.  These books also include high-frequency words broken out into "flash" and "heart" words.  Flash words are ones that students will know "in a flash" because of their predictable spelling and letter patterns.  Heart words, or words they need to know "by heart" because they have irregular sound or spelling patterns.
