Description

Do your students struggle with decoding words? These engaging spring and summer no prep reading comprehension passages are a great tool to help your students with their literacy development. These are fully decodable and target phonics skills. These are scaffolded and build on each other from one passage to the next. They start off with CVC reading passages and move all the way up to multi-syllable words. The covered skills are noted below and in the preview.

True Decodables

When writing things like seasonal passages, these do not include hard words that would be difficult for children to decode at that targeted skill level. Skip the guessing. These are true decodable passages. For example, you will not see the word spring in the CVC readers for kids to guess, but instead find spring themes like bugs for CVC words. Once students have built up to decoding words with blends and glue sounds, spring is a word they will then decode.

In other words, these passages will not lead your kids to guess words that are not either decodable or high frequency words commonly taught by the time that skill is typically introduced. Instead, these will help your students to orthographically map the words in their mind by targeting in on phonics skills they can decode.

50 Different Passages

There are 50 different written passages in total. Twenty-five are spring themed and twenty-five are summer themed. There are four options for each different passage, so you can differentiate instruction. The options also allows them to be used easily in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classrooms since I offer different line options in addition to multiple choice and a drawing option. To clarify, there are 200 pages of 50 different passages because of the options. These are all organized by option for each theme with a clickable table of contents to make printing easy.

The different options are a great way to offer rereads in your classroom that can be used for spiral review.

You can find the scope and sequence that details the skills covered more clearly in the preview that is linked by the cover picture above.

This Seasonal No Prep Bundle is a Give Back Bundle

In addition to the no prep decodable seasonal passages, this bundle is actually a give back bundle. This no prep seasonal bundle started off with just the 100th day of School No Prep printable packet that has been a top seller at The Candy Class. As a way to give back, more no prep seasonal items have been added such as these seasonal no prep phonics passages. However, the price is only the price of one of the resources included as a way to give back. In other words, there are other no prep seasonal resources in this bundle too. There may be more added in the future possibly too. It is not a growing bundle, but there is a possibility more will be added in the future.

About the Author’s Skill to Write Decodable Passages:

These seasonal decodable reading comprehension passages are well written by Jolene Mathew, a children’s author, who is also an experienced primary teacher with over a decade of experience in the educational field who has stayed current in her professional development with following the science of reading best practices and has been a life-long writer since the age of ten. She started creating phonics resources in 2013 and can be found making up silly rhymes with her son all the time. She has written over a hundred decodable books and passages for The Candy Class and another technical educational company. She says she now catches herself rewording her social media posts to be decodable these days because it has become so embedded in her thinking when she writes. That just goes to show how much skill she has developed with writing decodables that it has become an automatic way of writing for her.
