Inside this file there are decodable reading passages for the following Short A patterns:
-ap, -an, -ack, -at, and -ag.
Each Short A vowel pattern contains TWO reading passages for two different levels of readers. Each passage contains fluency trackers for students to read the text three times, as well as three comprehension questions. For the lower level reader, all questions can be found in the text. The higher level reader includes some inferential, beyond-the-text questions.
Every vowel pattern also comes with a page of word cards to use for interventions, extra practice at small groups, or individual use! There are also two activities for the passages: Roll and Read and Rainbow Write! I use these activities during Daily Five or independent literacy time.
These passages can be used independently, in small or whole groups, or for extra practice/homework. Enjoy!
