Predecodable Readers include connected text comprised of high-frequency words that students have learned. These readers may include rebus or picture clues for words that students are not yet able to decode. Predecodable readers are ideal for practicing high-frequency words in connected text, teaching students how books work, and giving students a sense of what reading is. They can also be highly motivating for early readers. Why are Predecodable Readers important? Predecodable Readers are used to develop word automaticity with taught high-frequency words and to practice fluency. They are also excellent instructional tools for practicing book handling and developing concepts of print.
