The Tam and Pat decodable series developed by the team at DSF and Little Learners Love Literacy.
The Tam and Pat series readers feature the same stories as the original Little Learners decodable readers Stage 1 to 4 however the characters and illustrations have been modified. In these stories we are introduced to Pat, Tam, Mum and Dad plus their two pets, Sam and Tip. Each story is set in regional Australia where Tam and Pat live, play and go to school.
There are four expertly levelled stages for children to read within the Tam and Pat series - introducing sounds and letters in a tried and tested sequence. Each stage also introduces a small number of Heart words. These are high frequency words that children cannot decode yet and need to learn by heart.
The Tam and Pat decodable books:
