Hello all

We recently attended the 2nd and 3rd training sessions for PRESS and noticed in a video for PHONICS that the teacher had a prepared paragraph that the students read after practicing the specific phonic skill ie, cvc or digraphs...

What resources are people using for this?

Some people make up a paragraph using the words from the list, or here are some sights you could try.

Did you find anything to use for this?  I am wondering the same thing.  

Thank you!

As I watched the video, the passages reminded me of the old Peer Assisted Learning or PALS as we called it.  From what I know, there is a kindergarten, first, second, and possibly third grade phonics program.  It follows a similar format as the PRESS format...letter sounds, blending words, then a passage(not always great quality or interesting reading) with the sounds.  There was then a seperate fluency and comprehension format you could use with your class.
