What is Supercharged Readers?

Supercharged Readers is a series of 37 decodable and controlled text chapter books. Building on the alphabetic code learned in Power Readers, it follows an intentional sequence that builds on syllabic and morphemic principles to help students access increasingly challenging text. It includes pre- and post-reading activity pages that give teachers the strategies to supercharge their readers.

Supercharged Readers is designed for students in grades 1–2, and can be used for strategic or intensive reading practice for students in grades 1–4.
