I love to see the excitement on a child’s face when they read their first word! As soon as they are starting to read words, it is important to begin working on fluency. That’s why these CVC Word Family Fluency Passages for Early Readers are a must have in your Kindergarten and first grade classroom!
CVC Word Family Fluency Passages
CVC words are some of the first words students start to read. The success they feel when they are able to read the words in a word family propels their desire to keep reading!
That’s one of the reasons I love these CVC Word Family Fluency Passages. CVC words are mixed with simple and predictable phrases to help students practice word recognition and fluency at the same time.
This pack contains 46 pages of printable fluency resources to help your early readers become successful with CVC word families! This pack was designed with kindergarten/1st grade students in mind, but could be used for any early reader who is working on their fluency!
There are 23 word family story passages for students to read and illustrate and 23 fluency phrase pages for students to practice reading phrases in isolation. These pages also incorporate punctuation such as question marks or exclamation marks so that students practice fluency with different punctuation.
CVC word families included in this resource are:
- A: at, am, ap, ad, an, ag
- E: et, en, ed
- I: id, it, ip, in, ig
- O: ot, op, ob, og
- U: un, ub, ug, ut, um
Sight words used were taken from the Dolch pre-primer and primer lists.
How Can I Use these in My Classroom?
I use these fluency passages in my classroom in a variety of ways. After learning a new word family, I like to add them to a center or use them for small group instruction.
I like to have my students highlight each of the words in the word family and draw a picture of what they read (this can make a great comprehension check too)! These are a great tool for reading conferences to check in with each of your students individually.
One of my favorite things to do with these fluency passages is create a book for each of my students. Simply get an inexpensive binder for each kiddo, and as they can successfully read each new passage, add it to their binder. This creates a “book” of passages that you know they can read, and it makes them feel so accomplished!
Digital Ease Versions Included!
I recently updated this resource to include versions of each passage that can be easily shared with your students digitally!
Want to assign a passage to your students via Google Classroom™ or Seesaw™? No problem! I’ve included instructions on how to get these important practice pages to your kiddos in a snap.
