Our kids have begun reading CVC words or three-letter words. It is a good time to introduce sight words so that kids can begin reading sentences. Once they are reading sentences, we move on to reading passages that focus on CVC words.
These short passages with CVC words focus on helping emergent readers to develop confidence and fluency, and also check comprehension. Children can use simple sight word knowledge and blending skills to enjoy these passages.
CVC words passages are well suited to shared reading, guided reading, and independent work, depending on the skill level of individual readers and the intent of the lesson.
The first passage is for ‘CVC words for short vowel a.’ The title is ‘Pam and Dad.’ Read the passage at least three times. The child reads the passage and colors a star. The passages include sight words.
