Sunshine Phonics - Decodable Books

A New Zealand series with real stories using words that children can read!​

New Zealand stories using words that students can read!

The programme teaches students phonics skills in a sequential and systematic way so that they can learn the sounds (phonemes) and the letters that represent them (graphemes) and then practise and apply this knowledge through reading a text that makes sense. This ensures that every beginning reader will experience success in their reading from their very first book!

The programme features:

  • Decodable vocabulary with some high-frequency words
  • 100 enjoyable stories with another 80 coming in Terms 3 and 4!
  • Systematic progression for learning the phonemes and graphemes
  • Full-colour illustrations to support meaning
  • Comprehensive Teachers’ Books that include lesson plans, activity sheets and assessment 
  • Created by local and international authors and illustrators
