These CVCe word family phonics poems are fluency and poetry in one! They contain decodable text along with high-frequency words for students to practice fluency and rhyming and are aligned with the best practices of the Science of Reading.

The poems are 8 lines each, with high-frequency words, CVCe words, and rhymes. They contain pictures and are perfect for poetry notebooks, folders, small groups, and more!

The following word families are included in this phonics poems pack:

  • long a: -ace, -ave, -ame, -ade, -ape, -ake, -ate
  • long i: -ice, -ide, -ike, -ine, -ile
  • long o: -ole, -ope, -one, -oke, -ose
  • long u: -ute, -ule, -ude, -une (-ule, -ude and –une contain some /oo/ sounds)

*There are no long e passages because there are not many words that are long e with a CVCe pattern.

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

What educators are saying:

Each poem is used for guided practice of decoding of words with target sounds. The poems are useful for partner reading and independent reading. After multiple guided readings students are able to read the text to practice fluency.

This was exactly what I was looking for! My students are able to predict the last word based on the rhyme. Thank you for creating this!
