Phonic Books: Moon Dogs Series Set 2

Catch-Up Readers for Older Students

Designed for older students, these books can be used to either teach or reinforce new and already learned decoding skills. All seven progressive phonics series feature action-packed stories divided into books with short word counts, with the conclusion of the story in each set's final book.

  • Designed for guided or independent reading
  • Ideal for practicing specific decoding patterns in the context of a larger narrative
  • Text is supported by color pictures on each page
  • Each book focuses on a set of sound-spellings for readers to practice
  • Action-packed stories in short books (average 50-70 words per book)

    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.
