Decodable Readers

Decoding and the Phonics Based Approach Helped Our Children to Read
Decodable Readers Australia is a movement created by three parents and educators who decided there had to be a better way to help children who were struggling to read. In the beginning, we were mums and educators just like you, searching for a way to ignite a child’s love of reading, and ensure that our children had a foolproof pathway on their ‘learning to read’ journey.

We Set Out to Make an Impact
With decodable readers already available, we knew we had to be different in order to make the biggest impact. We are the only beginner reader series to offer 20 books in each level, allowing children to master each set of phonics before progressing. We are also the only beginner reader series to embrace the 5 essential components of learning to read, incorporate minimal sight words, and engage children in Australian themed stories.

The feedback we have received about our unique decodable readers has been extremely positive, with schools proclaiming ours are the best on the market!

The Decodable Readers Australia Vision
It is our goal and our passion to be a big part of the solution in improving literacy results around the world. In the future, we want to reach out to under privileged communities to educate their teachers and donate our resources, helping to change their students’ lives for the better.

At Decodable Readers Australia, we are dedicated to creating resources that prevent illiteracy, because we truly believe literacy has the power to break the poverty cycle. We want to share this gift with the world and this is the legacy we wish to leave behind.

Contact Our Educators for More Information About Systematic Phonics
We believe supporting parents and teachers through a child’s ‘learning to read’ journey, is just as important as supporting the child. If you have any questions about our decodable readers or our phonics based approach, please get in touch. We’ll happily answer your queries.

Greenline

At Greenline, we refuse to see Australia become an indoors country, so we’ve spent two generations softening the sun’s effects. Faced with extremely varied landscapes and conditions, we’ve learned to be creative in our approach. We design resilient structures that can stand up to the harsh, dry sun of the south, or use innovative design to catch breezes in the tropical heat of the north.

In doing this, we create much more than shade – we craft carefully designed spaces where communities can come together. We take time to get to know the land and the locals, learn how the sun strikes and the rain falls, study how people spend their time outdoors, and consider our client’s plans, from every angle. Our world-class designers use this knowledge to imagine structures that stand in harmony with the landscape, and the community. Then we paint the land with shade and light, carving out cool spaces where people can rest, play, learn and share long afternoons.

Over two decades, Greenline’s shade has become a crucial part of the landscape, strengthening Australia’s long legacy as an outdoors people. Thanks to Greenline, Australians are healthier, their days are longer and their bonds are stronger. Because we don’t just create shade – we bring communities together to enjoy their bright and endlessly beautiful days.
