These CVCe passages are decodable for building fluency with reading CVCe words!
These "My Very First Phonics Passages" are decodable CVCe passages that will help with decoding, fluency, and reading comprehension related to CVCe words! They are perfect for students who are newly learning the CVCe phonics skill.
Use them with emergent readers, kindergarteners, first graders, for intervention, tutoring, and more!


For every passage, you will find:

  • The skill listed in the left hand corner so it's easy for you and your students to reference.
  • 3-4 targeted CVCe words listed with tracking dots underneath so that your students can decode the words in isolation before reading them in context. This can also be used to front-load vocabulary for ELL/ESL students.
  • 3-5 sentences per passage so that your students can successfully read a story without feeling overwhelmed.
  • The passages use ONLY CVC, CCVC, CVCC, targeted CVCe words and sight words so that your students can successfully decode without confusion!
  • Three fluency-building smiley faces at the bottom - Students mark or color a smiley face each time they read.
  • Text-based comprehension questions with multiple choice answers so that you can assess whether or not your students are comprehending what they read.


The following CVCe skills are included. There is one passage per skill for a total of 36 passages.
