Teacher Made Stuff - Reading Passages

I am constantly making stuff for my class. All school year long, all summer long, all the time.  Most often, it comes from a void that I see and need to fill. At the beginning of the last school year, I got THE group. You know, the class that just does what you ask, and to add to that, they did it quickly and quietly. I was truly blessed. After a week had rolled by, I noticed that they were all pretty much primed for reading. Their DRA levels were close together and they were ready to take that next step, but I needed something specific for them and only them. I needed some reading passages that used the short vowels and the pre-primers all at the same time. So, I made what I needed. And I thought if you can use it too somehow, then even better. Here's a peek at what it looks like. There is a coloured and black & white version for each one.

Cluck on any of the pics for the free download.

So, definitely something I used a lot at the beginning of the year. Hope you can use it too.

I'm linking this Freebie up with Teaching Blog Addict's Freebie Friday. You can find other great freebies there as well.
