Read and Illustrate: Phonics Fluency Passages

March 5, 2018


These phonics fluency passages are the perfect way for students to practice reading for fluency! After you’ve taught a phonics pattern, students can read, re-read, and illustrate to show understanding.

These types of passages are great for small group practice to target skills students need extra help with.
