Yellow Series

The Yellow Series is our first series, and it consists of 10 Titles - 5 Fiction (illustrated) and 5 Photo. The first book in the series introduces short <a>/ă/, short <o>/ŏ/, and a small selection of consonants. As the Yellow Series progresses, the following concepts are introduced:

    • all short vowels and all single consonants
    • consonant digraphs <th>/TH/ voiced (in “the”), <ck>, <ff>, <ss> and <zz>
    • some common orthographic patterns such as when to use <ck>
    • suffix <-s> as third person singular verb present tense and as plural
    • High Frequency Words: "a", "and", “the”, and “to"
    We have also created Teacher Tip Sheets for each book. These are available for free download: 
    Yellow Series Teacher Tip Sheets

      The first 5 books in the Yellow Series are Fiction (illustrated), and the final 5 books are Photo. The first few books of the series have short phrases as well as sentences to help beginning readers build their confidence.

      The font is large with extra spacing between words and lines, and we use a font with the single storey <a>.
