Build blends fluency with these decodable blends reading comprehension passages and questions! They are perfect for students who are newly learning blends.

Use them with emergent readers, kindergarteners, for intervention, tutoring, and more!

For every passage, you will find:

• The skill listed in the left hand corner so it's easy for you and your students to reference.

• 3-6 short vowel words with blends for the targeted skill listed with tracking dots underneath so that your students can decode the words in isolation before reading them in context. This can also be used to frontload vocabulary for ELL/ESL students.

• 3-6 sentences per passage so that your students can successfully read a story without feeling overwhelmed.

• The passages use ONLY short vowel words with blends and sight words so that your students can successfully decode without confusion!

• Three fluency-building smiley faces at the bottom - Students mark or color a smiley face each time they read.

• Text-based comprehension questions with multiple choice answers so that you can assess whether or not your students are comprehending what they read.

The following blends skills are included. There is one passage per skill for a total of 20 passages. Use a passage each time you teach a new blend so that your students can consistently and explicitly practice their newly learned phonics skills!

**Please note this product is complete and I will not be adding any more skills. If a skill is missing, that means there were not enough short vowel words with the skill to create a comprehensible passage. Thank you for understanding.**
