Phase 4 (Blends) set has been written specifically for the progression of Letters & Sounds. Phase 4 (Blends) readers introduce 38 different adjacent consonants (blends). The text uses only decodable regular. Phase 4 readers will follow students week-by-week through the program providing them text-based context to practice their emerging reading skills. Every story has been written with a strictly controlled text, so that students are only exposed to those letter sounds that they have previously learnt. Furthermore, tricky words are only included after they have been introduced. Build confidence in older, struggling readers as they master the phonics code. Can also be used alongside other popular schemes as book-banded reading levels are provided.
