Each book is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches and has approximately 16 pages. All books feature engaging black and white illustrations; lively contemporary themes; and inside covers which clearly list phonetic concepts and sight words.

Titles in Set 2 include: Mac Gets Well, The Big Game, The Joke, The Cake, The Bee, The Goat, Sail, The Seal, Hide and Seek, and The Fire.

Comprehension exercises for Storybooks 2 can be found in Comprehension Workbook 2.

Skills Addressed

  • Silent-e
  • Vowel digraphs (ie, oe, ee, oa, ai, ea)
  • Sight words
  • Using phonics to read decodable, connected text

Primary Phonics is a systematic, phonics-based early reading program that facilitates individualized instruction through flexible, skills-based workbooks and storybooks that correspond to students’ ability levels.

Category Description for Primary Phonics Core Program - Level 2:

Level 2 reviews short vowels and teaches silent-e, vowel digraphs (ie, oe, ee, oa, ai, ea), sight words, and sentence construction.

Category Description for Primary Phonics:

Begin this program at Level 1 if your child already knows her letter sounds. Otherwise, begin this program at the K level. Workbook K teaches one new consonant sound per lesson, with cumulative review of all previously-taught consonants. Lessons are very thorough and also include a short printing practice (traditional lower case) for each letter. You will need the Teacher's Guide in order to use this workbook effectively since this part of the program is teacher-intensive. Once a child has mastered all of their letter sounds, they are essentially able to read very simple words. The Consonant Workbook would be excellent to use for reinforcement of the skills being learned in each lesson, beginning after lesson 2. It contains two pages per letter of practice and could be used for independent work following the consonant lessons. Also available is the More Consonant Workbook which provides additional practice.Since there is much coloring and use of color words in the Primary Phonics Workbooks, you may will also want to have your child go through the Color Workbook prior to beginning the Level 1 Primary Phonics books. This entire workbook (32 pages) is dedicated to teaching eight color words: red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, brown and black as sight words. This could be done in conjunction with the Consonants lessons or even earlier.

In 2008 the publisher added explicit teacher instruction through teacher's guides for Levels 1-3 and 4-6, making this program more useful for the homeschooler. Here are all of the lesson plans, pacing information, material correlations, and pre-testing. Each lesson gives you a list of materials to use: workbook, comprehension workbook (Thinking About Mac and Tab), and storybook pages. A Warm-Up has teacher-led student review of learned concepts. Phonemic Awareness instructions help students practice sounds in an audio drill-like format. The Phonics portion of the lesson introduces the new concept (introducing a new phonogram like short a or ay, for example). This is followed by a Vocabulary section including Word Knowledge (making sure students understand words on workbook pages or in lesson) and sometimes a Sight Word section to introduce new sight words in the lesson. There are also directions for completing assigned student pages in the workbook(s). Other components of the lesson may include: Comprehension (oral questions about the student work), Writing (using concepts in written form and Reading in Context (if students will be reading from a storybook reader). There is also an occasional Differentiating Instruction section that has specific suggestions based on student learning styles (auditory, visual, kinesthetic, etc.). One of the nice features of this program is the consistent review of previously introduced material, insuring that the student will achieve mastery of each phonetic concept. The corresponding storybooks reinforce the phonetic elements taught in the workbooks, but can also be used independently or to support any other phonics program. Comprehension is an integral part of the program also and is introduced at the earliest possible point in the program. The comprehensive Thinking About Mac and Tab Teacher's Guide contains discussion questions corresponding to each story as well as an answer key to the corresponding Thinking About Mac and Tab workbooks (there is one workbook for each set of storybooks). After your student has read a story(book), you ask the discussion questions, then initiate a follow-up activity (optional). The student is then to work the brief comprehension exercise in his/her Thinking About Mac and Tab workbook independently.

Phonics skills taught per level are:

Workbook 1: Short vowels plus six common sight words and basic color words

Workbook 2: Long vowels a, i, o, u and vowel digraphs ie, oe, ee, oa, ai, ea, ee

Workbook 3: Plurals, initial and final blends, compound words, two-syllable words and the sight word are.

Workbook 4: Consonant digraphs and r-controlled vowels.

Workbook 5: Additional vowel combinations, qu, three sounds of y, special sounds (esp. the letter a), and open syllables.

Workbook 6: More plural forms, compound words, two-syllable words. New consonant sounds and diphthongs including soft c, soft g, gu, dge, ph, ie, oi, oy, ight, ow, and au.

Although Workbook 3 covers initial and final blends, an additional Workbook is available (see More PP Workbook Level 3). This workbook presents initial blends in a comprehensive, systematic way. Every two-page spread introduces a new initial blend and provides cumulative practice of previously-introduced blends. This gives much more concentrated practice of this skill than the Workbook 3 which introduces 2-4 blends per page. You may even want to have your child work through this More Workbook prior to using Workbook 3.

Speaking of extra practice, the More Primary Phonics Workbooks 1and 2, along with their accompanying Storybook Sets provide just that. They can be used for additional practice of all skills introduced at the corresponding level of Primary Phonics (similar to the Explode the Code ½'s) if you feel your student needs more reinforcement.

Two final supplemental products round out this program. Audio CDs are available for Storybook Sets 1-6 read by Sarah Lawson. This may be helpful (and fun) for students to listen to in addition to decoding the books themselves, or for extra support or reassurance of their decoding skills. The Primary Phonics Picture Dictionary includes a picture for each of the 2500 frequently used words contained within. This includes most of the words used in the series plus other common words. This would be a nice resource for beginning writers or children learning English as a second language.

Primary Phonics is a solid, comprehensive beginning phonics program, made even more so with the inclusion of the new Teacher's Guides. It's comparatively low cost makes it an even more attractive choice.

Category Description for Complete Programs - Phonics:

Primary Phonics are powerful tools to teach children how to read. As a teacher, mother, and now grandmother, I have used these in the classroom and at home since 1988. I strongly recommend them.
Sue m on Apr 21, 2022
I needed a complete set of simple decodable readers for teaching my preschooler how to read. I am combining these with the Bob Books and Dog on a Log series so I can give my child more practice without having them just memorize the words in books they have already read.

These are the perfect readers for beginning readers. Begin with Set 1 and then move on to set 2. I was a Kindergarten teacher for 20 years and now am a tutor. The Science or Reading recommends this type of decodable readers for reading success in children.

When do you use story books 1A?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 1A and 2A sets are just for if you need extra practice before moving on. Personally, I have chosen to just continue reading the sets 1 and 2 until the phonics are mastered, rather than having 10 extra stories. So, the "A" sets are just extra options if you need more time before moving on to new content in the next set.
I would like to know the progression of phonograms in this series. Does it build one phonogram at a time, or several of like sounds, or in groups such as magic e?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 1. Long Vowels with silent e. 2. Long Vowels with silent e review. 3. Long Vowels with silent e review. 4. Long Vowels with silent e review. 5. Vowel Digraphs ie, oe, ee. 6. Vowel Digraph oa. 7. Vowel Digraph ai. 8. Vowel Digraph ea. 9. Vowel Digraph review. 10. Vowel Digraph review.
I hope that helps.
number of pages
What is the number of pages in one book?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most of these books have 16 pages, with one or two sentences and a black and white illustration on each page. The front cover lists the sight words in the book and the words in the story that address the phonics concept taught. Hope this helps!

Great phonics for the beginning reader!
So glad I found these books! Phonics books for the beginning reader appear to be readily available but then end up having way too many words that can’t be read by the early reader! These books have simple basics words that my daughter can actually sound out and read with very few (and simple) site words.

Same books I learned from as a kid now being taught to my son. Basic, engaging and spot on. A little old fashioned on some names and terms but kids pick up fast.

My son and I love these books!
These books keep my son's interest and it's easy to help him continue to learn new sound blends, etc.
We keep reading the books a few times until he becomes proficient and he also gains confidence along the way.

I love them! They are perfect for beginning readers. They use silent e words, then do 2 vowel words, and then use both. There are a couple sight words that your child needs to know, but nothing that they can not read once they learn the silent e rule and the 2 vowel rule! I would recommend them to any child who is in a Kindergarten class that teaches them to read.
