Decodable Text Worksheets – Single Graphemes (Set 2)

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF, Word | 10 pages | Years: F - 1

A set of 10 decodable text worksheets for early readers.

What are decodable texts?

Decodable texts contain a high percentage of words that use the GPCs (grapheme-phoneme correspondences) that students have already been taught. As students learn more letter-sound relationships, they can read decodable texts of greater complexity.

Texts that focus on the short vowel sound – CVC, CVCC and CCVC words

These 10 texts focus on the five short vowel sounds. The words used most commonly are CVC words, though some CCVC and CVCC words are also used. All of the words used in the text (apart from the tricky words) are decodable and use single grapheme letter-sound correspondences.

What are tricky words?

The top of each worksheet lists the ‘tricky words’ that the students will encounter within the text. A tricky word can be defined as a word that a student cannot decode using their current phonetic knowledge. It is recommended that teachers highlight and discuss these tricky words with the students before commencing the worksheet.

How do I know my students are reading for meaning?

In order to ensure that students have understood what they have read (not just decoded it), a comprehension question is included at the bottom of each worksheet. A simple drawing or writing task related to the text is also included.

What texts are included?

  • My Red Pen
  • Max the Dog
  • I Am Sad
  • The Wig
  • The Camp
  • The Fat Rat
  • Tim Is Fit
  • The Tap
  • The Pink Box
  • My Dad
