ARI free resources

The ARI decodable readers provide abundant exposure to a controlled selection of sound-letter correspondences, enabling decoding to become automatic, and fluent, confident readers to flourish (see full range of books in online shop). We have put together the resources below to help you to get the best out of the programme.

Initial and Mastery Assessments and graph

The Assessments are simple and quick-to-administer, providing essential indicators of reading progress and demonstrating whether what has been taught has actually been learned. The accompanying graph provides an instant visual record of progress.

Initial and Mastery Assessments:
• Indicate the optimum starting point for each child
• Provide the baseline for comparing before/after progress for school records

Order of Introduction

A story-by-story record of word, sound and letter(s) introduction, incorporating a tutor comments section.

Phonics Check Assessment

On completion of ARI SET 2, all correspondences covered in the Gov.UK Phonics Check Assessment have been introduced and thoroughly practised.

Preview samples of books

Preview samples are available on request. Email at providing contact name, delivery address and which reading programme you are interested in. We can then post individual books free of charge for you to look at and keep for reference.
