Features 5 Long Vowel VCE Decodable Books

Children learn to read one letter sound at a time, but letters can make more than one sound—especially when it comes to long and short vowel sounds! The Charge into Reading Decodable Reading System is a structured system designed to grow with a child's phonetic learning. This 5-book set is the fourth stage in the series, building on the short vowel sounds, consonant blends, and digraphs used in stages one, two, and three. Each book in the Long Vowel VCE set contains a Long-Vowel specific story along with 8 pages of vowel-specific literacy activities meant to enhance a reader’s comprehension of the long vowel spelling pattern 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 4: Long Vowel VCE

The Charge into Reading Long Vowel VCE Decodable Reader Set is stage 4 of Charge into Reading’s structured system of decodable readers.

Building on the short vowel sounds, consonant blends, and digraphs introduced in Stages 1, 2, and 3, each volume in this 5-book set focuses different long vowel VCE sound. Repetition of these sounds throughout the book helps new readers gain confidence and mastery over Long Vowel VCE words before moving on to more complicated spelling patterns.

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