PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

~One of My Top Sellers!~ Please read the feedback on this item to see how and why hundreds of teachers have found fluency success with this product! :)

Do you have students who can quickly read sight words on a flashcard but then struggle to read the words within the context of a story?

This reading intervention packet contains *55* fluency passages that are JAM-PACKED with sight words. Each passage focuses on 4 "target" sight words. Implementing the intervention is EASY! :)

1) Students practice the four target words on flashcards in both a "print" font AND a Times New Roman font (commonly seen in printed material but rarely used on kid-friendly flashcards. This often causes a reading difficulty in struggling students who have trouble identifying letters within various fonts).

2) Students go on a "sight word hunt" with crayons or highlighters, coloring the four targeted words within the passage.

3) Students practice their fluency through three repeated readings, keeping track of each time they read the story by coloring the happy faces at the end of each passage.

4) Students demonstrate their comprehension of the passage by illustrating the text.

This pack contains 55 different passages that focus on the Pre-Primer, Primer, First, Second, and Third Grade Dolch Words (223 words total). Used once daily, that is over *TEN WEEKS* of reading intervention for your struggling students. Each passage also contains the number of words at the bottom of the page, allowing for teachers to use these passages as fluency assessments or to keep track of student progress.

This intervention packet would be great to use in a small group setting, as a warm-up for guided reading, an RTI setting, or within a tutoring or after school program. It can easily be used for struggling first, second, and third graders who have not yet mastered fluency skills with over 80 words per minute. (Passages within the packet contain between 65-90 words each.) It would also be appropriate for intervention settings and even fourth and fifth graders who struggle with reading fluency.

Please read the reviews from real-time teachers who are using this in their classroom right now! :)

**Download the preview to get all the materials you need for Story #1 so that you can try the intervention out with your students, if desired! :)

*This pack uses the Dolch Sight Word Lists. If you need the Fry Words, please click HERE. This is my second pack and will provide you with an additional 75 passages to use with your students!

This product is available in a BUNDLE version with my second set of passages. Please click HERE to check out the Bundle Product

Christina, these are one of the best things that have happened in my classroom this year. I teach resource room and one of my 2nd graders read a paragraph for the first time to her parents at conferences using the first story. We all cried. During classtime, after we had read together as a class several times and I asked her to read by herself. She looked at me and said "I can't read" in such a sad voice. I encouraged her to try and told her she could read. When she made it to the second sentence without any prompting from me, she looked at me with such excitement and started yelling "I can read, I can read". Thanks for your product. You have made my year!
What do you think about something similar for CVC words or themed sight word passages(Christmas, Easter, etc.)?

I have a few second graders that still can't read. Last week, one of my students was able to read story 1. He was so excited I wanted to cry! He has carried that paper with him everywhere and reads it all the time! Thank you for giving me one of those teaching moments I'll never forget! This is truly one of the best products I've bought. Thank you!

These made reading for him much less daunting and more enjoyable than anything I had or had found. He had his own little pack of stories and sight words which he took out to either read on his own, to me, to a friend or a teaching aide. Just perfect. Thank you so much!

LOVE these passages! I struggled finding appropriate passages for the first grader I am tutoring and these were the ticket! It has built up his self confidence yet challenges him at the same time. I love the repeated reading component to them--we've started graphing his progress from the first time he reads a passage, to the third time as well as a fourth time on a different day and seen great improvement. Thanks so much for your hard work!!

Hello! :). No, the sight word passages do not contain any informational text. The passages contain decodable words and words that show up frequently for fluency. I'm currently working on informational text passages that follow the same format as my Read and Retell pack that is in my store. Thank you! :)

I just bought this pack and unfortunately we use the Fry word list, not the Dolch word list but I think I can still make it work. You said that the 2nd and 3rd grade words were added. How can I tell what they are? Thank you!

On  September 8, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Hello! :) The words are all taken straight from the Dolch word list. Story #1 begins with the Pre-Primer list and goes all the way up through third grade. On story 34, the second and third grade words begin with the words always, around, been, because.

:) Thank you!

Hi there,

I just purchased your amazing Sight Word Fluency Passages For Reading Intervention, but unfortunately once I downloaded it, I realized it uses DOLCH words. Our school district test students on the Fry words. I know it was my mistake, but it was an expensive purchase. I'm wondering if there is any chance I can get a refund for this purchase since I won't be able to use this resource.

Thanks for your consideration,
Tegan

Just wondering what are the reading levels (approximate) for the sight word fluency passages... I know you have 2nd adn 3rd passages added. Just wondering if there are some that are suited for 1st grade, beginning, middle or end of year? Thanks so much!

On  August 23, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Hello! :) Thanks so much for your question. The passages cover the Pre-Primer through third grade words, so there are passages for all of those levels within the pack. They are not "leveled" but because the words grow in difficulty, they are suitable for many points within the year. I designed them for my first graders, originally. I've used them all throughout the year and I am able to differentiate the passages for different groups based on the stories I choose. I hope this helps. :) The previews will also help you to see what they look like. Thank you! :)
On  July 8, 2013Cynthia Hart (TpT Seller) asked:
The answer to this might be an obvious one I am too tired to see....but on your 'Let's Make Words" sheets...do your students use other letters in addition to the ones printed on the worksheets to make words ? Or just the letters you printed ?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 9, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Hi Cynthia! Thanks for your questions. I think you are referring to my freebie sheets? If so, then they students only use the letters provided. They will, of course, reuse the letters to make all of the words but they will not need any extra letters to create the secret words. :) Thank you so much!

Good Morning Miss, DeCarbo,
I teach first grade down in Florida and I was wondering, Do you have the second part to the first grade Fluency sight word packet? I purchased the one you said that they could be used earlier in the year. However, I am using them for RTI. I tested my students on the first 100 fry words and they knew most of them all. I was wondering if you have created it and I'm just over looking it. It did say look for the second part coming soon. Thanks these are great and I am excited to get started.

On  March 4, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Hello! :). Yes, the second 100 words are coming but I have not created them yet. I'm currently working on adding passages to the first pack and hope to have those out by this weekend. Then, I will begin working on Pack #2. It takes me awhile because I like to make sure they are "just right" before posting. :) Thank you for your patience and your purchase! :)

Do you use the Dolch nouns as sight words?
Are you planning on an easier level? The first story is too hard for many beginning readers.
Do you include a tracking system for the teacher of student scores/improvement?
Thanks for your help.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 31, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Hello, thank you for your questions. The nouns are not included in this pack. The only words included are the preprimer through third grade Dolch words, as stated. The preview includes the first story, and the rest of the passages are similar. If you believe the first story to be too difficult for your students, I would suggest waiting to purchase this. My struggling readers have made immense growth with this. Each story has the word total at the bottom for teachers to mark words read if they are timing them, but there is not a single tracking sheet. The preview download will further explain all that is included. I hope this helps. :)

I love these sight word intervention passages. Would you be able to make them with the Fry list of words? Let me know.

On  January 16, 2013Miss DeCarbo answered:
Thank you so much for your purchase. :) I have thought about this, although many of the words will overlap. Another pack is definitely on my to-do list though! :) This current pack took me a lot of time, so it may be awhile before another version is ready to go. Please follow my store for updates though and it will notify you when a new pack is posted. Happy Learning! Christina

I am very excited to get this started with my strugglers. My question is the packet of 103 pages does not have Story #1 in the 'print' font and I do not see the free preview that you suggested downloading.
I have downloaded previews before for other teacher items, so just let me know what I should do to add this section. Thanks again!

Hello! :) I just checked it on two different kinds of computers in my home and it is coming up. Do you have the latest version of Adobe? If not, upload the Adobe and that usually fixes everything. :) To download the preview, just click on Download Preview which is the button right below Multiple Purchases. Again, I've checked it and had someone else as well and is coming up. If you need any help, please let me know and I'll put an order in for you. :) Thank you again!

I saw that there was a revision to this since I purchased it on Tuesday. I could not click to see the description of the revision. Could you let me know what changes were made? (I just printed this and I'd rather not print out all 106 pages if it is not necessary.)
Thanks so much!
I am really looking forward to using this next week.

I'm sorry the description is not working for you. Don't reprint it all. :) I found an error on Story #3. That was the only page changed. I apologize for any inconvenience. My little kiddo was struggling to find the sight word "find." I finally figured out it wasn't in the story! :) It is fixed now. Thank you SO much for your purchase and support. :)
