Online Materials

Half-Pint Readers decodable books are still available to read for FREE on our website, as some schools remain closed. I have listed the skills that children need to learn, before reading each set of books. Each book builds upon the skills from previous books so the books should be presented in sequence.

These books show up best on computers or iPad/tablets rather than phones.

I have also included links to the Teaching Guides, Activity Pages and Literacy Centers. Please note that these resources are not updated. I am having trouble with the outdated program I used to create them. Please understand when some of the illustrations are different from the books.

Thanks and happy reading!
