This resource contains a CVC story for each short vowel including an and am. Accompanying each story is a sheet featuring fill in the blank sentences and comprehension questions. In addition, there are phrase cards that students must put together to complete sentences from the story and then read orally to practice phrasing. This resource is perfect for small group phonics based reading instruction or as a center activity to support your phonics instruction. This also complements Orton-Gillingham based instruction for readers who require this type of instruction.
