What educators are saying

These were great in addition to our reading intervention program! I love that it's organized into skills and I can just pull that specific skill for an individual student!
This is an amazing resource that I use all the time in my small group reading instruction. I love that I can quickly find the phonics concept I'm working on with students.


You teach phonics and you teach fluency & comprehension every day during your reading block. What if you could combine the two into a one-page phonics-based fluency passage with comprehension questions?!

This reading comprehension resource was created for kindergarten and 1st grade students.

Included in this bundle, are 89 passages focusing on each phonics component while focusing on reading fluency.

Two Options for Each of the 89 Passages:

  • An option with 3 short answer comprehension questions for each passage OR
  • A single page option with 2 multiple choice, 2 fill in the blank, and 1 short answer comprehension question.

Why Phonics-Based Passages?

  • No Prep: Simply print and go. No folding, cutting, or gluing.
  • Review Opportunity: Perfect for reviewing learned phonics skills through grade-level texts.
  • Fluency Support: Use the fluency sets with embedded recording and accountability graphs to support students with fluency goals.
