PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fluency passages are an amazing way to increase your students' reading fluency. I've created reading passages that will allow me to not only help my students' fluency but to integrate science and social studies as well. Each fluency passage is based on a different science or social studies concept! My primary focus was on the Georgia science and social studies standards, as well as the Next Generation Science Standards. In the preview, you can see a list of the different topics addressed within this packet. If there is any topic you’d live to see addressed, be sure send me an email, and I’ll try to add it! I won't be able to make anything state specific, since that would quickly get out of hand:) Be sure to ask first if you have any questions or specific requests. My email address is asheligh_60@hotmail.com

I really appreciate your hard work! The content of the passages is appropriate for the age group and is really engaging. I read the passage aloud to the class modeling proper phrasing and fluency. Then the students identified the words that need clarification and we discussed meaning, etc. We also practiced choral reading several times during the week. I also used the same passage as fluency homework. The parents were ecstatic to know that their third graders were reading about democracy and its roots. I am very satisfied! Thank you!

On  March 3, 2014MrKinder (TpT Seller) asked:
Would it be possible to put page numbers on each of the passages? In a corner or something? The beginning page with all the information is so helpful, but I would love page numbers as well! Or, even a box with the page number and lexile level? I may be asking too much with that :).

Hi Ashleigh! These passages (Fluency Passages) are great, however one of my students pointed out to me today that there is an error on the magnets passage. It says that like poles attract when it should say opposite poles attract. Is there a way to send me a corrected version? Thank you! I love this, and I believe that I will see a huge difference on the CRCT results!

On  November 18, 2013Silvia Garay Sanchez (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, I was reding the fossils passage and found a mistake on line 9 which says "This usually where we find insects or pieces of plants." Should it say, "This is usually where we find insects or pieces of plants."

On  October 13, 2013Mandy Lopez--The 4th Grade Journey (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Ashleigh. I started using these passages last week and LOVE the results I'm seeing so far! I printed a graph for each of my students so they can see the growth they are making. The graph that I printed goes up to 130 I believe, yet the particular passage we read last week had 154 words. Am I mistaken in not seeing another graph? Or doing something wrong? It's completely possible, but wanted to make sure there isn't another graph I'm missing that goes higher. Thanks a bunch!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 14, 2013Ashleigh answered:
Hi Mandy! I did make the graphs stop at 130, only because it make it a little easier for my students to fill out. I can email you an editable version, so you can make changes as needed. I typically stop using the graphs whenever I have a student do a cold read at 120 WMP.

I love this idea, however I live in Canada. I was wondering if it would be possible to only purchase the science passages. Thanks!

These fluency passages look fantastic. I'm wondering how the passages have been leveled. Did you write them yourself or did you get them from somewhere else? I will be teaching 4th grade this year. Will you be making a 4th grade pack in the future? Thanks so much!

I wrote them all myself! Most of these would work for 4th grade, and I do plan to create a 4th grade version. You can level any text on the website I've attached.

Hello!

I teach fourth grade and was wondering if you were going to create fourth grade fluency passages or would purchasing the third grade set be sufficient for my kids as well?

I think they will work for fourth grade. There aren't passages on the higher end of fourth grade, so that would be my only concern.

I have a fluency folder I use too but with poetry. I agree, it makes a huge difference in a child's reading growth! Parents love it too. I really, really like the idea of linking the fluency practise to science and social studies! I am from Canada so some of what you teach in grade three we teach in other grades. I would love to know where you got your reading passages? I want to make some that suit our units. Erin

I actually wrote all of them and then leveled them on the Lexile website.
