PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**updated 3/10 to include parent directions in Spanish

35 original weekly passages organized with the story on one page. Parent tips and comprehension questions are on the back. Each four week section is organized around a theme and includes fiction and nonfiction passages. Over the course of the year the passages cover a variety of genres: informational text, fable, biography, myth, folktale, tall tale, etc. All of it is common core aligned.

Our fluency topics:
1. School and friendship
2. Things that come in 3s
3. Eat me when I’m fatter
4. Fable vs. Fact
5. Denmark: Legos and Hans Christian Andersen
6. India: the Mongoose and Rudyard Kipling
7. Koalas
8. Mississippi River lore (7 weeks)

The pages is set up to make this run as smoothly as possible for Mom and Dad. The main focus is, of course, the story. The number of words for each line is noted to the right side. At the bottom of the story is a place for Mom or Dad to record the words read.

The packet includes:
• 35 common core aligned weekly 2nd grade passages and comprehension questions that cover a variety of genres
• Parent note (in English and Spanish) explaining how (and why) to do this assignment
• Fluency bookmarks to remind students how fluent reading should sound

This is amazing and well worth the money! As a second grade teacher and a parent of a second grader, I am totally sold on this product. I love how its set up and love how the weekly passages relate to the previous passages. The questions really get the kids thinking. We have had some great discussions in my class over the open ended question 4! Fabulous product!!
On  February 5, 2014Second Story Window answered:
I'm so glad to hear that! Thanks for sharing, Jolie! That was my intent with the open ended question, but you never know how it's going to work in someone else's classroom. :)

I use these passages for homework every week. They are kept in their homework notebooks, read and time recorded each night and questions answered on Thursday night. My parents have commented that it is a good way to see how their children are improving in fluency. I love it and will use it for years to come! Thank you so much!

We are using these in class with partner reading. It is amazing to listen to all of the students working on the same passage--they are really beginning to hear the differences in their reading styles and are practicing their fluency with ease. They are also learning to give each other constructive feedback in regards to their reading aloud.

Hi there! Is the "Mississippi Lore" section something that would be completely frustrating and unrelatable for students in Ontario, Canada?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 22, 2013Second Story Window answered:
I teach in Utah which is almost as far from the Mississippi as Ontario is and my kids did fine with it. There's a bio of Mark Twain, a history of paddle boats, information about alligators, a retelling of Tom Sawyer painting the fence, 2 tall tales, and a summary of the Mississippi river geography. In this pack there are also stories about India and Denmark, so it's got a broad geographic scope.
On  October 8, 2013Tracey Tatebe Miller (TpT Seller) asked:

Hey! I am interested in buying the second grade fluency homework. Do you mind telling me what resources you used to devleop this? Or are they all teacher made? Our county is big on research based so I want to check the resources. Thanks! I love it!

Are you curious about the philosophy behind it or the source material for the stories? The philosophy comes from several sources like Tim Rasinski. Google "fluency and repeated readings" and you'll get a lot of info. The stories are all original.

Just wondering how you use these in your classroom? Do you talk about it on your blog? Just wondering if you do any kind of check in the classroom or if you just use the scores the parents record? When I have done fluency in the past I had a parent do the cold read on Monday. Students then practiced for homework and a parent did a final read on Friday. Just wondering if you do anything else besides homework. I love these and can't wait to use them!!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 20, 2013Second Story Window answered:
On Mondays we discuss any background knowledge/vocab they might need then they listen to me read it aloud. Next we choral read the story and answer the questions. It goes home that day and it comes back on Friday morning. I score it on if it's returned or not, but I record their highest words correct per minute score so I have an idea of how they're progressing.

I am having trouble printing each file!! I purchased the 2nd grade homework and have no trouble printing each file. It downloads it, but when I print, it prints out "PCL XL error on the paper. Not sure what I am doing wrong!!!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 10, 2013Second Story Window answered:
Oh no! I haven't heard of this before so I did some searching online. That error message is for HP printers, and it's a problem with the printer itself (especially if it's on a host network, like at a school) not with the file. You could try printing it on another printer or contact the tech specialist in your school to help. Good luck!

We are required by TpT to say that every teacher needs to have their own license. But when you buy additional licenses they are at a 50% discount so they would only be $9 each. TpT accepts school purchase orders, if that is how your school wishes to pay. Here's how to do that:


Let your school pay! Available for orders over $20 only.

Step 1. Add items to cart.
Step 2. At checkout choose to pay by School Purchase Order.
Step 3. Download and fill out your TpT PO Cover Sheet.
Step 4. Send it back to us WITH your signed School PO.

Within 3 days of receipt of your paperwork, we will process your order and send the bill to your school.

On  October 29, 2012Second Story Window answered:
Hi Nicole! I'm so glad our products our working for you! Since originally uploading the Morning work and Fluency, TPT has added a "buy multiple licenses" option so we've been encouraging teachers at the same school to go that route. It gives you the same copying rights at a discount. However, our previous listing did state that teachers on the same team could share the files and we will honor that agreement. You can decide what works best for your team.
