Have Fun Teaching Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) - Home LibriVox Decodable passages - FreeReading From FreeReading Decodable passages are short stories that can be read by a student who knows: How to sound out regular words, and The 30 irregular words taught in the Irregular Word sequence. Many decodable stories included in commercial reading programs are redundant and lack the authenticity of a real reading experience. We have tried to create stories that are more authentic as well as being 100% decodable. That means you can discuss the meaning of the story after reading it, building your students' comprehension skills. FreeReading includes activities to introduce students to reading connected text (see Reading connected text accuracy (passage)) and to help students become fluent in reading connected text (see Reading connected text fluency (passage). Select a story from:  Passages to practice letter combinations We also have a selection of stories that provide practice for students who have learned the letter combinations (such as sh, oo).
