The Fitzroy Readers is a set of graded books which employ the Fitzroy Method - a phonic approach to reading developed over the last 3 decades.
Readers 1x-10x are 10 new stories, set at the beginner level (as 1-10). These were requested by teachers to provide children with more practice on simple sounding words before moving on to the next level (11-20) with its many digraphs.
Without introducing any new spelling principles, the Readers 1x-10x provide more long words which can be simply sounded out.
There are hardly any new special words in the 1x-10x series.
The basic principles of sounding out are consolidated with more sounding words and longer sounding words.
There are several sounding-out options available. All speech is high-quality recording. The interface is designed for young fingers and can be used by the student alone or with a tutor.
Ratings and Reviews
Looking a little dated but still a great Aussie accent resource for the classroom.
These readers in app form are FABULOUS!! My son is a struggling reader and this app is engaging- usually after two pages he would be asking how many more pages, he read all 10 or so pages without even noticing. If the child doesnt know a word, they tap it and it becomes bold on the screen and then sounds it out. When the page has been read, press the sound icon and the page is read out loud in a clear voice with perfect expression. My son has whipped through the first set so now Im buying 1x-10x. In book form this set costs $60 so $10.95 is value!! THANKYOU!!!
