What educators are saying

I found this resource very helpful for practicing fluency and comprehension. My students enjoyed using similar texts with varying levels of difficulty. Thank you!
If you teach special needs students ( or as I like to phrase it, students with unique gifts) than this resource is for you! Comprehensive and well organized make it user friendly. Thank you.

Products in this Bundle (4)




    In this bundle, you get 10 passages for each grade level, each month along with 10 comprehension questions! That's 480 passages that you will have at your fingertips in four different monthly-themed bundles!

    • 120 Practically First Grade Passages
    • 120 First Grade Passages
    • 120 Second Grade Passages
    • 120 Third Grade Passages

    Why bundle? Because we understand that you have a range of learners in your classroom! These passages have similar themes, but they are differentiated at a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade reading level!

    Why Comprehension Passages?

    It is important to remember that sometimes we emphasize fluency so much, that we forget about comprehension.

    That is why we created these passages AND comprehension sheets.

    The comprehension questions include text-dependent questions and higher-level thinking questions.

    This helps to identify students that are missing comprehension skills after they read the assigned passages.

    If you are looking for high-interest, grade-level appropriate passages, you are in the right place.

    Here's What's Inside!

    • 480 Practically 1st, First, Second, and Third Grade Monthly Themed Fluency Passages
    • Recording and Accountability Graph
    • Comprehension Questions (with text dependent and higher level questions)
    • Word Count and Answer Key for Teachers
