Kindergarten Reading Comprehension Passages

This is a set of 40 unique reading comprehension passages for kindergarten and 1st grade readers. The passages focus on CVC words with a few sight words and other simple words to tell a story. This set is for early emergent readers. The children will read the passages and then answer questions about the passages.

Also Available:


Each passages focuses on a particular word family. The word family is listed in the top left corner of the page. As an optional exercise, you can have the children take a highlighter and color each word that is part of that word family.

Just under the name line are 3 smiley faces. The children can read the passages 3 times for fluency. Each time they read the passage they can color in one of the smiley faces. Then they answer the comprehension questions. When the children answer the questions, they can both fill in the circle of the correct answer and write the answer word on the line.

Here is a list of the passages included in this set:
