This is a phonics/fluency story that can be individualized by inserting your students' names directly in to the story. Students love to see their names, and the story is all about him/her and their friends. Each story focuses on a different phonics element. The lines have word counts at the end for ease in tracking fluency. A cold read is given first, then after practicing the story for a few days a final read is given. The students love seeing their word count go up tremendously!
