Grade 2: Skills Unit 1 Reader "The Cat Bandit"

The decodable Reader for Unit 1 is "The Cat Bandit." The stories tell of the adventures of a hungry cat and the increasingly clever ways he gets food items seemingly out of his reach. The stories in the CKLA program are 100% decodable, meaning they are made up entirely of spellings and Tricky Words introduced or reviewed quickly in class during previous lessons. The stories in "The Cat Bandit" are short and quite simple. They are designed to help students ease back into reading. The length and complexity will increase as students review more letter-sound correspondences.
