The DSF Bookstore now offers an excellent range of classroom bundles which include multiple copies of each book in the series. These bundles are designed for use in classrooms for reading groups, intervention programs, or as take-home readers. These bundles make it easy for teachers to ensure that all students have access to high quality reading materials at the right level.

This bundle provides five (5) sets of each stage of the Tam and Pat series (100 readers in total) and is perfect for the classroom!

The Tam and Pat decodable books:

  • Are real stories with relatable characters and lots of humour 
  • Are perfectly sequenced to ensure children achieve success 
  • Include notes on 'How to enjoy this book" and comprehension questions
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.
