The Macmillan Explorers Phonics bring first language teaching methods to reading lessons in international classrooms. They focus on how reading works, so children are able to read new texts and pronounce new words more easily, with each book having a strong, identifiable phonic focus.
Many of the phonically regular words found at each level in the existing Explorers reading books are re-used in the Explorers Phonic Reading Series books and listed at the back of each book. Specific phonic vocabulary is also listed at the back of each book.
Each title has free downloadable audio, both for the text and for the exercises at the back of the book. You can also find comprehensive teacher’s notes for the Explorers Phonics series as a whole under the Downloads tab.
Levels A and B are for beginning readers, and Levels 1 and 2 are for developing readers.
