These fluency and comprehension passages are interactive, fun, and perfect for learning and reinforcing CVCe words. While using each brochure, students get the opportunity to learn a new phonics pattern and practice using that spelling pattern in the context of reading for comprehension. Each tri-fold/brochure also incorporates a fun word work activity.
I used the form of a brochure because my students hate worksheets! It might seem silly, but turning a flat piece of paper into a brochure adds a lot of excitement to little ones.
Step 1 – Introduce the CVCe phonics pattern. Print front/back to make the brochure.
Step 2 – Read a list of words and pictures. Color the pictures and underline or paint the phonics pattern.
Step 3 – Read the passage. (If using the passages in guided reading groups, have the students whisper read and help them decode as needed.)
Step 4 – Read the passage a second time and underline all of the words with the spelling pattern)
Step 5 – Write the words from the story. Go on a word hunt to find other words. Underline or paint the spelling pattern.
Step 6 - Read the passage a third time and answer the comprehension questions.
Step 7 - Students retell the beginning, middle, and end of the story with words or illustrations.
Step 8 – Unscramble and build words with the phonics pattern.
(I have included an extra insert for this unit… Use a spinner (paperclip and pencil) to spin a word. Add e to make a new word and record the word in the frame. This extra sheet can be cut and added to the center of the brochure.)
These activities and passages are the perfect way to engage students and promote confidence and a love for reading.
