These High Interest Phonics books are designed to equip older, struggling learners with the phonic foundations they need to become fluent readers. All too often, older readers have gaps in their phonic knowledge and skills which prevents them from making further progress. These series plug the gaps by engaging older readers in age-appropriate, appealing stories while introducing step-by-step phonics within controlled, decodable texts. Once the teacher has taught the target phonics in each book, the student can read the book successfully and independently! This phonic structure ensures that the students develop their reading skills as they progress through the series. Students will grow in confidence, motivation and self esteem, and will be able to tackle increasingly complex texts.

The Alba Series is aimed at girls and boys with a feisty, resourceful female heroine. Twelve beautifully-illustrated and age-appropriate books start at CVC/CVCC level and progress at a faster pace through adjacent consonants, consonant digraphs and alternative vowel spellings. 12 full-color pages in each book will simulate older, struggling readers. The Alba Series follows that same phonic sequence as the Totem Series and can be used in parallel. This series also includes a comprehensive 272 page reproducible workbook which offers blending, segmenting, comprehension and writing activities within the context of an exciting quest.
