Decodable passages are short stories that can be read by a student who knows:

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. These stories are also more cognitively demanding and use slightly more sophisticated language than typical decodable stories. This is an opportunity to better develop your students' oral language skills. In some cases, it will require repeated readings of a passage for students to understand it fully.

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).
