Free Fluency Passages for Kindergarten

There is nothing more exciting than when your kindergarten students begin to make connections and reading starts to happen! But what do you use next – it can be so hard to find good fluency passages for your students. So here are some free fluency passages for your kindergarten and first grade students who are ready to start reading.

Working on fluency with meaningful short passages will really help your students on their journey to learning to read.

All of the passages are built to focus on one skill – short or long vowels. The sentences are short and simple so your students can easily go one sentence at a time to complete the passage. Grab it now!

This set of free fluency passages includes a complete printable + digital set for short a: Bad Cat! Use them in whole group instruction, centers, independent practice, or send-home to reinforce key skills. There are so many ways to use these free fluency passages!

This sample set is from my larger unit of ENDLESS Fluency Passages with printable and digital versions. This growing unit currently includes 5 short vowels, 4 long vowels, vowel teams, and digraphs (many more to come), as well as Google Slides & Seesaw versions. Each printable activity comes with 15 differentiated question pages! Seesaw comes preloaded with audio options. Students can hear the directions/questions read aloud to them and they can even record their own voice reading the passages. It is so cool! So check it all out here!
