To support the Yes We Can Read scheme, we have published a set of 4 reading books which are designed to reinforce the reading skills the learner has acquired up to 4 key points in the Yes We Can Read programme. This builds confidence and creates a sense of achievement as the learner recognises the phonic sounds and spelling patterns featured in each book. The learner will be able to read the books alone or with minimal support from the coach. Like Yes We Can Read, the reading material is designed to be fun, and the learner will further develop the habit of reading for meaning. The reading books are suitable for learners aged 8 to 80.
