Reading fluency is something readers need to practice consistently. This means you need a lot of resources for your early readers to practice reading. That’s why these CVCe Word Family Fluency Passages are a must-have in your teacher toolbox!
CVCe Word Family Fluency Passages
Once a student learns the pattern of a CVCe word family, a whole new world of reading opportunities is opened to them. Aligning word family and fluency work is the perfect combination.
These fluency passages were designed with Kindergarten/first grade students in mind but they are perfect for any early reader who is working on their fluency!
This pack contains 39 pages of printable fluency resources to help your early readers become successful with CVCe word families!
There are 18 CVCe word family story passages for students to read and illustrate. This pack also includes 21 fluency phrase pages for students to practice reading phrases in isolation. These pages incorporate punctuation such as question marks or exclamation marks so your students can practice fluency with different punctuation as well!
CVCe word families included in this resource are:
- long a: -ace, -ave, -ale, -ame, -ade, -ape, -ake, -ate
- long i: -ice, -ide, -ike, -ine, -ite, -ile
- long o: -ole, -ope, -ose, -one, -oke, -ote
- long u: -ute, -ule, -une, -ude
There are no CVCe passages for long e because most long e words are spelled with other long vowel patterns.
Ways to Use Fluency Passages in the Classroom
In my classroom, I use these fluency passages in a variety of ways. After learning a new word family, I add them to our literacy centers or use them for small group instruction.
My students highlight or underline each of the words in the word family and draw a picture of what they read (this is a great comprehension check!). These are also 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 to 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!
This resource includes 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 students in a snap.
