It’s time for another set of free phonics readers! You’ll love this set of eight books that teaches ten phonics patterns: oi, oy, aw words, and more!

Are you looking for free printable books to help your beginning reader? These are perfect for homeschooling, classroom use, and for parents who want to give extra reading practice at home.
Let me tell you more about my printable phonics readers!
- Each books has a combination of sight words and phonetic words.
- Each book focuses on a different phonics pattern. The first five sets focus on basic short vowel words. Since then, I’ve added books with long vowel patterns (ea, igh, etc.) , digraphs (ow, ew, etc.) and longer short vowel word families (such as ump and itch). This is set 14. You can expect 24 sets in all.
- The books are a collection of unrelated sentences, not true stories. This is purposeful, because putting together a story with the same phonics pattern throughout is hard to do in a way that makes sense.
- The pictures are bright, colorful, and often funny.
- Perhaps most important of all, the books are readable. Even though each set adds additional sight words (which are listed on the back of the book), the books advance at a slow rate. Both new and struggling readers will appreciate the reasonable pace.
- And best of all, they’re free! My long term plan is to package all the sets for easy downloading and offer them for a small cost. But the individual sets will remain free, so you won’t have to pay for them if you don’t want to.
Let’s take a look!
Each book starts like this. Your child will have a chance to read each new word without any picture as a clue. This will promote attention to the phonics pattern, which is written in a different color.
Turn the page, and your child has the opportunity to the word in a sentence. Then he starts again with a new word.
Each page has phonetic words that were taught in previous sets. This page has the oo pattern in cook and the ell family in smell.
Each sentence has sight words we’ve learned from my free sight word reader collection. (These later sets of phonics books have sight words that I haven’t written sight word books for… all in good time!) This page’s sight words are do, not, and that.
The silly pictures are a bonus!
Finally, each book ends with a list of the words that were taught.
This is the first set where I put two phonics patterns in a single book. I did that twice: for the oi/oy patterns and the ue/ui patterns. There weren’t enough words of each pattern to make as single book, but I didn’t want to leave them out!
How to print and assemble:
- Separate the stack into each individual book. Each book consists of two pages front to back.
- Cut across the horizontal center of the pages.
- Insert the pages into each other, using the page numbers as a guide.
- Staple with a long arm stapler.
