These 43 short and simple reading passages were created to give young learners an opportunity to practice fluency, comprehension, written response, and phonics. The fun passages all contain decodable words and sight words. Each passage focuses on a specific phonics skill, to help maximize learning.
Students read the passages three times, (coloring in a number after each read) which builds fluency, and answer three text-dependent questions, helping them learn the importance of finding the evidence in the text.
