Reading Fluency Passages (Blends)
No prep, just print and go.
You get 25 engaging passages that focus on the initial blends and build fluency.
Kids of all ages are motivated by Minecraft. You don't need to be a computer whizz to tap into the craze with these fun blend passages.
Each has three blocks to shade when the child has read the story.
Personally, I read it to them the first time, then they read to a buddy and finally they read alone.
Children in my class class love hunting for the blends. Each passage has a dozen or so uses of the focus blend while still telling a fun coherent story set in the Minecraft universe.
Your class will love drawing the accompanying picture and practicing their writing in the spaces provided.
These make for great homework activities and with 25 different passages you have plenty to work with.
This resource could also be used as part of a Hi-Lo program for older students. High interest, lower difficulty passages can be helpful for reluctant or struggling readers:
Stories (passages) include:
Thunder in Threes
Bread for Bricks
Climbing the Cliffs
Grill or Grain
Drongo the Dragon
Shopping for Shields
Twice the Twins
Note: A bonus for NZ teachers
All passages are in NZ school handwriting fonts.
