The Rip Rap novels are fully decodable; sequentially and cumulatively introducing and practising digraphs, so that students are not confused by the plethora of word patterns in books with an uncontrolled vocabulary. The novels tell interesting, exciting stories, using natural language rather than the stilted and contrived sentences of some decodable material.

There are three series of Rip Rap books, each comprising 12 novels. The A and B Series are both suitable for upper primary to secondary students and adult readers. The Club Series is principally aimed at primary to lower secondary aged children. While it is important that each series is read sequentially from level 1 to 12, the levelled vocabularies of the three series are very similar. This means that students can switch between series, or read more than one book at each level for additional practice. The books in the Club Series however, are similar to one long novel, so it is particularly important that students read each book of that series in sequence.

Description

The fact that you are exploring the Rip Rap books, suggests that you are already aware of the overwhelming body of evidence that a systematic phonic approach is the most likely method to be successful to teaching reading, particularly with at-risk students. You will probably know that current research recommends the use of decodable books to support your phonic teaching program.

The Rip Rap novels are fully decodable; sequentially and cumulatively introducing and practising digraphs, so that students are not confused by the plethora of word patterns in books with an uncontrolled vocabulary. The novels tell interesting, exciting stories, using natural language rather than the stilted and contrived sentences of some decodable material.

The Rip Rap Club books are designed for primary aged students, from about 7 or 8 to 12 years, though older students enjoy them too. These are decodable books for all students, but particularly for those whose reading skills are delayed.

The Rip Rap novels, Series A and B, are written for upper primary and secondary aged students who have lower than average reading skills. The Rip Rap novels are designed to look like the books that similar aged students read.

With a strictly controlled vocabulary, and introducing digraphs and spelling patterns one at a time, these exciting, often funny, stories build confidence in reading and a solid foundation of phonic understanding.

These high interest, low reading level novels are intended to be read in sequence. Each builds on the skills learned in the previous book. Confidence is built through success and practice of word families.
