Moon Dogs Series Set #1
The Moon Dogs Series is designed to appeal to older, catch-up pupils at the very early stages of reading. Set 1 introduces sounds gradually and reinforces reading these in CVC words. All words are at CVC level with one line of text to the page. This series, designed around a group of teenage friends who are in a band, offers contemporary illustrations and short, humorous stories about their lives.
Reading skills are developed through step-by-step progression which allows practice and consolidation at each level. The series complements any synthetic phonics teaching program.
Moon Dogs set 1 gradually introduces the initial sounds of the alphabet at CVC level text.
