Are plural endings tripping up your new reader? Try this set of free phonics books!

Today I’m sharing set 15 in my collection of free phonics readers. What I love about this set is that it allows your child to review many of the patterns he’s already learned. In this set your child will learn to read -s and -es endings on words. Often these are plural endings (as in bricks). Sometimes they are verb endings (as in chops).
In this set of books, I’ve highlighted the phonics pattern your child has already learned (in green) and called attention to the plural ending in red. This way your child doesn’t need to be overwhelmed at the new word he’ll find on each page. Encourage your child to read each chunk of the word and then put them together.
Turning the page, your child can read the new word in a sentence – plus review other patterns from previous books. (On this page, your child reviews long e words (make) and the ack family.
And there you have it! In this set you’ll find a total of five books: three for the s ending and two for the es ending. Enjoy!
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.

I signed up to get these readers, but was only sent 21 pages instead of 33 so 3 of the books are incomplete. There are so many links and large “click here” boxes on this website I can’t figure out how to get the complete download.
This is Kate, Anna’s assistant. That’s a typo and I’ve fixed it. 21 pages is the correct amount, so you have the full set! 🙂
Thanks so much for these amazing readers! I noticed that in the early phonics readers, you give a suggestion as to when to introduce them, in relation to your sight word readers. That ends with set 5 Phonics/Set 26 of the Sight word readers. Can you give me a rough idea of how/when to introduce the later phonics series, since you have added even more sight word readers? Thanks again!
Hi Susan! I’m sorry – I decided not to keep up with that, so I don’t have a solid line up for the rest of the readers.
Thank you for this freebie. Please note that while half of the target words are regular plurals, the other half are third person singular forms (e.g. He plays, The boy drinks…)
Yes, that’s true. I actually address that at the beginning of the post.
