This reader is about Gem who can read words that end in 'e' such as late, vine and rope. The purpose of this set is revision and extension of the previous four sets. The reader provides lots of practice opportunities and is focussed on the long vowels, consonants and the silent 'e' - 'a-e', 'i-e', 'o-e' and 'u-e'. Consonants used are 'k' and 'v'. Sight words are also included. 

Tas and Friends is a series of 100 Readers for developing skills in decoding. When children are learning the basic foundations of phonics they need continual practise of these foundation elements. Readers provide a perfect opportunity to introduce the vowel, consonant, syllable or blend to use and then practice. These sets of Tas and Friends readers provide an ideal means for children to gain fluency and secondly, have fun reading for the first time. Phonics and decoding are the foundation skills for reading. It is true that some children can read without decoding but are they understanding the content? To speed up reading skills all children benefit by a starting program in decoding. This will introduce the student to vowels and consonants followed by a sequential building of use of blends and syllables. Children build confidence and fluency and are ready to decode unknown words. Readers speed up the literacy program in schools.
