Fluency Practice Libraries for SIPPS

K–12 Libraries to Support Your SIPPS Implementation

Independent reading of engaging books at appropriate levels builds fluency and confidence. Collaborative Classroom’s Fluency Practice Libraries for SIPPS provide age-appropriate collections of books chosen for characteristics of decodability to support emerging readers. 

These libraries are designed to support students who are receiving SIPPS® (Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words) instruction as they apply their newly learned skills in decodable texts first and then as they transition to trade books:

Decodable Books for SIPPS, Grades K–3

Decodable Books for SIPPS provide students with engaging books that align with the scope and sequence for SIPPS Beginning and Extension Levels to provide just the practice they need.


This collection of decodable books is organized by SIPPS level. One set is aligned with the spelling sounds and sight words taught in Beginning Level, and the other is aligned with Extension Level.

Developed with careful attention to natural-sounding language, plot, and character development, a variety of appropriate fiction and nonfiction topics, and high-quality illustrations, these decodable books help students develop accuracy and automaticity as they practice and apply what they’ve learned during SIPPS instruction to connected text. 

The books in each set are matched to their respective SIPPS Level scope and sequence and are grouped by mastery test.

Fluency Practice Library, Grades 1–3

The Fluency Practice Library for Grades 1–3 provides books that are appropriate for transitioning students in SIPPS Extension Level from controlled vocabulary texts to trade books.


The 150-book library is organized into 5 collections. Each collection contains 30 fiction and nonfiction books for early readers and represents a range of authors and popular series. 

The Fluency Practice Library was developed to give students the abundant reading practice they need to become fluent readers who understand what they read.

Hi/Lo Fluency Practice Libraries, Grades 4–6, 6–8, and 9–12

The Hi/Lo Fluency Practice Libraries provide high-interest, controlled-readability books to give older readers who are receiving SIPPS instruction the reading practice they need to build fluency, increase automaticity, and boost confidence. 

These engaging books motivate students to read independently and for pleasure—the goal of SIPPS Plus.


These libraries are organized by grade band: 4–6, 6–8, and 9–12. Each band includes two 20-book collections with a mix of fiction and nonfiction. 

The books were chosen for their engaging content and natural-sounding language as well as for their controlled vocabulary and low Lexile levels.
