These fluency passages for early readers contain decodable text with a CVCe word family focus along with high-frequency words for students to practice fluency and comprehension.

There are 18 word family story passages for students to read and illustrate and 21 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.

⭐️The following word families are included in both the passages and phrase pages:

  • 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

Please note that the u spellings contain some words with /oo/ sounds. There are no CVCe passages for long e because most long e words are spelled with other long vowel patterns.

There are also “digital ease” versions included if you would like to upload/assign directly in Seesaw™, Google Classroom™, etc.
