Please download the preview file where you will see examples worked with different aged pupils so that you can decide if these worksheets are suitable for you. I have found that some children have needed more support than others. I sometimes read through the text first or after the second read if they need more help, but they are soon able to read the passage fluently. You know your students best, so looking at the preview file will help you decide if these passages are right for them.
Each unit takes on average 30-50 minutes, depending upon the reader. We tend to have a lot of discussion around the vocabulary and we also use the lesson to learn spellings that come up.
Any questions, please ask!!! Any errors - please tell me!
