Oxford Reading for Comprehension Decodables

Fully decodable Australian guided reading for F–2

A unique approach to develop phonic and comprehension skills

Oxford Reading for Comprehension Decodables is a unique fully decodable Australian guided reading series for Years F–2. It is underpinned by a proven, finely sequenced phonics framework aligned to Letters and Sounds and the research-based Comprehension Skills Framework.

The ORFC Decodables series is structured so that the introduction of new sounds is supported by one fiction title and one non-fiction title in Oxford Reading Levels 1–6 to help develop strong early vocabulary acquisition and build student reading success.

Explore ORFC Decodables

Join Oxford Senior Publisher Joanna Lake as she introduces ORFC Decodables, Oxford’s new fully decodable Australian guided reading series for F–2.

This session explores how the new ORFC Decodables series develops phonic and comprehension skills from the start, and looks at the supporting research-based phonic and comprehension frameworks that underpin the series.

A tour of Oxford Owl at the end of the session highlights the online resources available for ORFC Decodables, as well as showcasing the eBook library.
