About InitiaLit Readers: decodable readers for Foundation and Year 1
MultiLit has developed two sets of 60 phonic readers for children who are just learning to read. These delightful decodable readers are carefully sequenced to encourage children to use good reading strategies from the start.
Children who love adventure, humour, mischievous animals and learning about the world around them will enjoy our beautifully illustrated stories.
The decodable InitiaLit Readers were developed to support InitiaLit – a whole-class literacy
instruction program for Foundation to Year 2 children.
InitiaLit–F Readers (Levels 1-9), first released in 2016, are designed for children in the Foundation year of school, as well as students in Years 1 and 2 who require reading support. Levels 1-9 cover single letter-sound correspondence and digraphs sh, ch, th, wh, ee, oo and ay.
InitiaLit–1 Readers (Levels 10-16), released in 2017, are for Year 1 students, and children in Years 2 and 3 who require reading support. Levels 10-16 cover ai, ea, oa, ow, _y, igh, ue, ew, split digraph, ow, ou, au, aw, oy, oi, ear, eer, dge, and tch. Different text types, such as information texts, poems and plays, are introduced in this series.
