This is a set of reading comprehension worksheets designed for kindergarten. They have decodable passages perfect for beginning readers! The stories slowly increase in difficulty as you move through them.
The following features help build reading skills:
- Fluency Practice – Students are encouraged to read the text 3 times with stars to color each time they read.
- Picture Support – Simple illustrations help provide context.
