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 14 decodable passages that align with a research-based systematic phonics scope and sequence and focus on CVCe and long vowel team 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

  10. Amy Bradford (verified owner)

    Our district is piloting SoR this year and we are required to use the decidable purchased for small groups. I’ m sad to say they are nowhere near as complete as these passages and teacher guides or routines. These are perfect for my intervention groups and I am sure my students will benefit greatly.

    I LOVE these passages. They are just the right length. They allow for inferring and my young ones have gotten quite accomplished at restating the question when they answer the questions. I love how all of the resources I have purchased coordinate to immerse my little ones into the skills taught!
