Phonic Phase 2 Resources

In our first 3 books we introduce the letters 'a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, l, m, n, o, p, r, s, t, u, x'. Click on a picture to get information on each book. 

There are 4 four stories in each book, making 12 stories altogether, for children to practise reading words at the CVC level whilst they are learning the corresponding letters and sounds. 

The high-frequency words 'a, on' are introduced in the first story in each book. The words 'in, on, and' are used in stories 2 and 3 in each book. 'The' is used only in story 4 in each book.

There are no sentences, verbs or punctuation. Capital letters are used in the names Tom and Bella only.


These books are available from Amazon via the red links.
