What is the school giving him to read?

Julia Donaldson's Songbirds are good - that link is to a very good deal on them.

Be careful you're not confusing him with letter names and phonics at the moment: if you're encouraging him to decode "be" as /b/ and /ee/ is that because you've taught him the letter name "e"? His teacher won't be teaching "tricky" words like that yet.

Agree - songbirds are good. I also used jolly phonics with my kids. You can also involve your son in story telling by asking him to 'read' you the story ie he looks at the pictures and tells you what is happening.

I'd recommend the reading chest. Google it - has been fab for us.

Download reception tricky words. These are some that don't fit the pattern. Stick to books that are fully decodable.

Look at the Oxford owl website, it has loads of free ebooks to read.

songbirds are good, Usborne do some purely phonics ones too and there are also Ruth Miskin Superphonics books.

and yes Oxford Owl is a very good free resource available internationally
