These fluency and comprehension passages are interactive, fun, and perfect for learning and reinforcing beginning blends. 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 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 ending blend. Print front/back to make the brochure.
Step 2 – Read a list of words and pictures. Color the pictures and underline or paint dot the consonant blend.
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 blend)
Step 5 – Write the words from the story. Go on a word hunt to find other words.
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 – Use a paperclip to spin and make words with the consonant blend.
These activities and passages are the perfect way to engage students and promote confidence and a love for reading.
