Phonics Bug

Introducing Phonics Bug, a fun new series of 100% decodable readers brought to you by the makers of Bug Club. Phonics Bug readers can be used alongside any other existing phonics program to aid in the instruction, teaching and learning of phonics.

They’re edited by Professor Rhona Johnston and Dr Joyce Watson and based on a seven-year study in Clackmannanshire, United Kingdom, which proved systematic synthetic phonics as the most effective way to teach children to read.

The books and eBooks are deliberately constructed, phonically decodable texts that are both meaningful and worthy of comprehension.

Spark their enthusiasm for reading with a brilliant combination of stunning eBooks in an online world and beautiful printed books containing humour, loveable characters and topics children really want to read.

Plays to Read

Perfect for both guided and independent reading

Beautiful illustrations and unforgettable characters to keep wandering minds engaged

Every play is available as an interactive eBook - kids pick the part they want to play and the others are read back to them.
