More About This Resource

These decodable passages with comprehension questions are the perfect resource for beginning readers.  Each passage is a phonics-based controlled text that contains target phonics skill words, previously taught phonics skill words and irregular high frequency words. The science of reading shows us that the connection between what our students learn in phonics and what they read is imperative for building a strong foundation in early reading.


This resource contains 19 decodable passages that align with a research-based systematic phonics scope and sequence and focus on blend & digraph skills.  Explicit lesson plans for each passage are provided for the teacher with activities for before, during and after reading to strengthen phonics skills. Differentiate for student needs by using the two versions of student printables and audio recording for each passage. Using these passages and lesson plans, students will reread the decodable text to build fluency, discuss the text to build comprehension skills and write about the passage to apply and transfer their phonics skills to their writing.

Included in this resource:

  • Research-based, detailed classroom use suggestions for the teacher
  • Explicit lesson plans for each passage
  • Student printables for each passage– two differentiated versions
  • Audio recording of each passage
  • Blending lines student printables for each passage & instructional video for the teacher

  • s blends
  • r blends
  • final blends

    It is so difficult to find a resource that works with decodable passages with words that have been explicitly taught. It is even more difficult to find one that has comprehension included! This resource has it all!

  4. Crystal Kirk (verified owner)

    I LOVE these! I use them for my struggling second graders in small group and my own daughter at home. I lesson plan page that comes with each passage identifies heart words and has everything you need to teach these. No prep work except copying. Huge time saver. Thank you!

  5. Nina Schaffer (verified owner)

    I have been using these for my small group instruction. I really enjoy how it is laid out. Heart words, sentence writing, comprehension, pointers, and much more. The BEST!

  12. Amy Bradford (verified owner)

    Initially I thought I wouldn’t be using these passages until next year since we had already taught blends this year. However, after using the screener I found these would be perfect for intervention groups!
