Decodable Books for Striving Readers
In this Community Chat, Cigdem will discuss what decodable books are, including some of their critical features and benefits. You will also learn how to determine the scope and sequence and why your STRIVING readers will love reading Simple Words Books (and you will too!)
About the Speaker:
When Cigdem Knebel struggled to find “big-kid” high-interest/low-level decodable chapter books a struggling reader could painlessly read, she began to write one herself for her 7-year-old son with dyslexia.
Cigdem is the founder of Simple Words Books (simplewordsbooks.com), decodable children’s chapter books ranging from 2000 to 8000+words. Her mission is to improve fluency, comprehension, and most importantly, reading-confidence of striving readers. She accomplishes this by using many carefully chosen decodable and frequently used words in her books with the skills of these readers in mind.
Cigdem believes that all children love to read. This is no different for children with dyslexia; they just need to find that right books for them. And Simple Words Books aspire to be those books.
