PHONICS-BASED READING PASSAGES FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR
Teaching phonics is critical for literacy development, as teachers we know how difficult it is to keep young minds interested in learning. Learning should be a comfortable and successful space for every student. Our Phonics-Based resources will help you make that happen!

Preparing phonics lesson plans for every learner can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re short on time.
I know you want to give every student the opportunity to reach their full potential. To do that, you need an efficient and engaging way to help all learners, even when they are learning at different levels.
The problem is, there’s not always enough time to give your undivided attention to every student. That can tug on your heart and make you feel overwhelmed and burdened. Like you, I believe every student deserves the help they need to become confident and proficient.
I felt the struggle in my own classroom. I created my first phonics bundle because I wanted to meet the individual needs of all my students and to cover multiple skills at one time. These Phonics Reading Passages were so effective and helped my students reading scores grow substantially.
If you want a fun, systematic, and proven way to keep learners engaged without investing a ton of extra time, my phonics reading passages is the comprehensive tool you’ve been wishing for.
You’ll have the flexibility to pick the exact skill for each lesson.
Phonics instruction should follow a clear scope and sequence that is developmentally appropriate and builds on skills that students are mastering. As students learn about the relationship between the sounds of letters and letter combinations, they are able to apply that knowledge to read unfamiliar words that follow a familiar pattern.
So, I made it easy for you to help guide your phonics instruction!
These phonics reading passages also exemplify engaging learning strategies with simple instructions and interactive activities while working on phonics, comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and writing.
Resources for all reading levels.
Here are a few of my favorite Binding Machines on Amazon.
Supports learners who are on, below, and above grade level.
These reading passages help build confidence in struggling readers or challenge higher-level learners to work independently.
Encourage mastery in several flexible ways.
You have the option to use these Phonics Reading Passages as an interactive notebook, digitally, as print-and-go materials, or even mix and match a combination of all of them.
These Phonics Interactive Notebooks and reading passages really take the extra work away from the teacher. I like to call this “stress-free planning.” These activities can be used as many times as you need to meet your classroom needs. We typically use them 2-3 times a week. You can get creative with how you use them. For example, to expand a reading passage, the student can glue a passage into the notebook alongside a word list and writing activity. I also have an additional Phonics writing practice that you can find by clicking here.
Fluency trackers are available for each skill for students to track their improvement in their reading. I had my students use blue to record their cold read score and then yellow to track their progress in reading! This is a wonderful way for learners to visually see their reading growth!
Here is a video preview on how using the Phonics Reading Passages in an Interactive Notebook works.
Meeting the Needs of your learing environmnet:
Additionally, you also have the option to include and assign digital reading passages to meet the needs of your learning environment.
Dabs or Kwik Stix can be used to isolate those target sound groups within a passage and are a fun way to target phonics sounds! Finding answers within a text can be tuff! Especially for new readers, highlighting or underlying sections can really “zero in” a child’s focus on a particular phrase in a passage. This is a great tool to help children better comprehend the answer.
These are all great ways to help your young learners to succeed in literacy development. Every child learns differently, and these passages can be easily differentiated to meet your student’s needs.
Plus, British (UK SPELLING) reading passages are also included in the bundle!
