Moon Dogs Series
The Moon Dogs Series is designed to appeal to older, catch-up pupils at the very early stages of reading. The series offers three sets of books, the first two sets containing eight books, and the third set containing 14 books. Set 1 introduces sounds gradually and reinforces reading these in CVC words. All words are at CVC level with one line of text to the page. Set 2 begins with text at CVC level and continues through the digraphs ch, sh, th, ck, ng, qu and wh. The series is designed around a group of teenage friends who are in a band and offers short, humorous stories about their lives. Reading skills are developed through step-by-step progression which allows practice and consolidation at each level. The series complements any synthetic phonics teaching program.
