This pack includes 30 phonics decodable reading passages covering the phonics focused concept: vowel teams. These phonics based reading passages are great to use with your early readers who are working on decoding words. Aligned to the Science of Reading, students will focus on decoding words for the phonics pattern.

Each phonics reading passage includes an initial word work practice where students will decode the words with vowel teams prior to reading in context. Students will then read the passage, decoding the same words with vowel teams and reading sight words, in context. After, students will practice writing the words with vowel teams when responding to the comprehension questions.

Pick the format that works best for you!

3 formats included, of each passage:

  1. Black & White printer-friendly format passage, which includes: word work, pictures, comprehension questions
  2. Black & White printer-friendly format, with just the decodable reading passage and pictures (Passages have larger print size and more spacing between the lines.) This format is great for introducing the text, or if you are looking for some extra practice with just the phonics concepts, in context.
  3. Full Page, colorful format, of the decodable reading passage. This is great for projecting in your classroom, or on your computer.

What's included?

There are 5 phonics based passages per vowel teams focus, and 5 additional passages for a combination of words with vowel teams, for a total of 30 phonics reading passages.

Phonics concepts included:

Words with vowel teams-

  • Long a (ai, ay)
  • Long e (ee, ea)
  • Long o (oa, oe)

These decodable reading passages work great in small groups, whole group, one-on-one or sent home for extra help. If you have students who need help with decoding words with ending blends, this is a great way to get them to practice those words in and out of context.

The goal of this pack is to assist early readers in their decoding abilities and, in turn, their reading skills as well.

I hope you and your students love these phonics reading passages and activities!
