Fresh Ideas for Using Decodable Sentences
Decodable text is written in such a way that it contains very few if any unknown concepts. It uses known syllable patterns, phonemes, and learned words. The complexity of decodable text changes as your students learn new concepts. A decodable sentence for a student working on CVC words with short a is going to look very different from a decodable sentence for a student that has 5 syllable types and multiple syllable division patterns under their belt and is learning a new vowel team. When choosing or writing these sentences, it is important to take into consideration the individual child and the concepts they have been taught.
