    Hi, Eryn! We do have these Decodable Text Worksheets for early years comprehension but as yet nothing similar for the same grade level. You can find those here: https://www.teachstarter.com/au/teaching-resource/decodable-text-worksheets-set-1/ and if you’d like to suggest a new resource, please lodge a resource suggestion so that you’ll be updated on any changes! Hope you have a great week!
