Sunshine Online Decodable Library
The Decodable Library contains 180 child-centred, relatable titles, both fiction and non-fiction. The titles follow a synthetic, systematic, cumulative, and sequential scope and sequence, so that students are exposed to phonemes and graphemes sequentially and then read meaningful texts containing only those sounds and letters that they have learnt.
The titles are automatically unlocked in sequential order ensuring that students follow the recommended systematic progression.
Listen and Say
In the Listen and Say activity, students review phonemes and record themselves segmenting and blending words.
In the Read activity, students can listen to the text being read, and read it themselves.
The Record activity requires students to record themselves reading the text, they can self-evaluate and review their recording.
There are digital assessments at the end of each set of books.
The easy-to-use teacher administration features lets teachers listen to student recordings, and review and track their progress.
Sequence of learning with the Decodable Library
Three digital activities provide many opportunities for learning in the classroom and at home, and student independent learning.

Teacher Support and Resources
Managed administration allows schools to set up students and allocate individual passwords so that an administrator or teacher can monitor progress and report using recorded data.
Teachers can assign a set of titles. Titles unlock sequentially in the correct order as they are completed by the student. Each set is followed by an assessment.
Teachers can view a student’s results and history and listen to the student’s recordings for the ‘Listen and Say’, ‘Record’ and ‘Assessment’ activities.
Many downloadable resources are available in the Teacher Resources area. These include Scope and Sequence, term planner, quick teacher notes, full teachers’ notes, student activity sheets (both phonics and comprehension) and lists of words for students to practice reading. As well as the digital assessments, there are also additional printable assessment documents, including screening tests, more phonics assessments, assessment of reading accuracy (comprising unseen texts), and comprehension assessment for those unseen texts and an encoding assessment.
