Based on Orton Gillingham/Wilson Reading Progressions
Six short passages with an emphasis on Magic "E" and Long "I" (i.e. bike, pile, time, stripe, etc.)
These short stories are great for early readers and those following the Orton Gillingham Framework closely. These controlled readers include only short vowels, consonants, consonant clusters (initial and final), doubling rule, and magic 'e'.
Please note: At this point in the Orton Gillingham progression, students have NOT learned past tense -ed yet. For that reason, there is also a heavy emphasis on passive voice and simple verb forms. These passages were created with simple, easy to sound out words only, which occasionally impacts the flow of the stories.
All sight words in the passages: Said, To, The, Was, A, They, He, There, Want, For, Go, Peep, Woohoo, All,There, Our, Great, Night, Their, Season, For, Too, Good, You
Use these passages in the classroom, small literacy groups, reading therapy, or speech therapy. They are great for increasing reading fluency, working on phonetically sounding out short vowel and magic 'e' words, and answering comprehension questions.
