Product Description
Beginning and struggling readers need a lot of practice with fluency. I have seen students struggle with the transfer of phonics knowledge (CVC words, CVCe words) in reading texts. These pages give students an opportunity to be fluent readers by identifying key words and practicing the passage three times. By the end of the third read, generally students will have more fluency and flow! Students must also find and write the key words and demonstrate their comprehension by illustrating the text.

This packet contains a collection of 20 passages that focus on key words. The key words chosen are words are CVCe words, CCVC words, sight words, R-controlled vowels, long vowels and tricky words. Passages use the key words in a repetitive manner. Each original passage is somewhat whimsical in nature to help hold the child’s attention. These passages can be used for skill practice, reading comprehension, fluency, intervention, cold reads, assessment, guided reading or sent home as homework.

1. Students practice the three key words

2. Students find and highlight the key words in the passage

3. Students practice fluency by reading the passage three times and coloring a star each time.

4. Students review the key words by writing them on the lines.

5. Students demonstrate comprehension by illustrating the story in the box.
