Sunshine Reading Road

Fully decodable texts for phonics consolidation

Teacher Resources

Reading Road titles reinforce systematic phonics in a sequential progression. Every title has been written with a strictly controlled text, so that students are only exposed to those letter sounds that they have previously learnt. They have the same structure and controlled vocabulary as other Sunshine decodable readers, but contain high-interest stories, featuring modern, engaging and relatable characters, and non-fiction themes appropriate for upper-primary age students.

Reading Road titles are designed to reinforce and consolidate previous learning from a synthetic phonics programme. Reading Road titles can be used after students have followed the Sunshine Phonics Decodables programme. The Phonics overview for Reading Road, detailing what sounds students must know to read the books, is below.

   Features of all Reading Road titles:

  • Fully decodable text (with some tricky words)
  • Reinforcement, review, practice and consolidation of phonics learning
  • All new, modern characters and story themes that upper primary age students can relate to
  • Non-fiction themes of interest to upper primary age students
  • Books in each pack do not need to be read in predetermined order – students can pick one that they find interesting
  • Full-colour age-appropriate illustrations and photographs
  • Reading Road 1 and 2 (review of simple and complex code) – 24 pages
  • Reading Road 3, 4 and 5 (review of extended code) – 28 pages
  • Book size: 148mm x 210mm
