Features Six Digraph Decodable Books

Children learn to read one letter sound at a time, but sometimes two letters work together to create a sound! That’s a digraph! The Charge into Reading Decodable Reading System is a structured system designed to grow with a child's phonetic learning.

This 6-book decodable reader set is the third in the series, building on the short vowel sounds and consonant blends used in stages one and two. Each book in the digraph set contains a digraph specific story along with 8 pages of digraph specific literacy activities meant to enhance a reader’s comprehension of the specific digraph(s) being focused on.

Our Charge into Reading Decodable Readers are fully vetted by Marisa Ware, MSEd, a LETRS, Top Ten Tools, and Orton-Gillingham-trained reading specialist and executive function coach.

Don't just memorize words. Learn to read them!

Learning to read doesn’t just happen. It takes hard work, and a lot of practice to learn how to decode text. At Charge Mommy Books, we understand the importance of supporting the growth of these skills, and of following a structured system of literacy when teaching children to read.

Our Charge into Reading Decodable Reader sets follow a literacy-specialist–approved scope and sequence, with each set of books building on what was taught in previous sets.

Stage 3: Digraphs

The Charge into Reading Digraphs Decodable Reader Set is stage 3 of Charge into Reading’s structured system of decodable readers.

Building on the short vowel sounds and consonant blends introduced in Stages 1 and 2, each volume in this 6-book set focuses on a specific digraph (or set of digraphs): CH; CK; PH, QU, and WH; NG; SH; and TH. Repetition of these spelling patterns throughout the book helps new readers gain confidence and mastery over digraphs before moving on to more complicated spelling patterns.

Each Digraph Decodable Reader also contains 8 pages of digraph-specific literacy activities meant to further strengthen a reader’s comprehension of the reading skill presented in the book.
