All the words in the books contain either the focus phonics pattern or easy sight words, allowing children to search for words that contain the pattern while building fluency. Engaging stories and beautiful illustrations will keep them reading.
In the Tales and Tiles Short and Long Vowels set, five books focus on short vowel words and five books focus on final silent e words. Each book contains many examples of words that follow the pattern.

For the a-e pattern, children blend consonant sounds with the long a sound to read the words such as cake, name, Dave, and snake.
