We are getting ready for our district’s new book adoption, so they are clearing out the district’s book room and have given us tons of decodable books. Decodable books offer children an opportunity to practice the phonics knowledge and skills they have learned within a controlled text. Children need to practice what they have been taught, in order to internalize the new learning and to develop reading fluency.
I have 3 uses for these books.
Every classroom needs to have an abundance of books to provide a print-rich environment for their students. Students must have access to a variety of books to grow as a reader and as a writer. Here are some ways to organize the books in your classroom.

A good way to keep students and parents accountable is to have students keep a reading log of books they read. There are several examples of reading logs.
