Kara B. re: MORE Sight Word Fluency Passages for Reading Intervention! {Version 2.0}
Do you happen to know the grade level equivalency for these passages? I am using these for Tier 2 with my lowest first graders. They are loving it! :) I just started but as I am documenting their data points their RCBM is significantly higher than their AIMS Web. This is fabulous because they need this boost in confidence. I have a few kids in child study that are reading so well with these passages and I need to justify the difference. I know they are lower than the AIMS Web passages, just wondering if you have figured it out specifically. Thank you for an awesome product!
April 13, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
Miss DeCarbo
Miss DeCarbo  (TpT Seller)
Hi Kara,

The passages are not Lexile leveled so I don't have an exact score on them. My kids read these better than AIMsweb, too. (We use AIMS as well! :). The reasoning is because the passages are mostly filled with sight words and decodable text. AIMSweb fluency passages include a lot of two syllable words, irregular vowel patterns, etc. The phonics within these passages are simply more decodable to boost confidence in young readers! :)

Hello. :). I'm sorry you are having tech issues, I know that can be frustrating. This sounds like an Adobe issue for your PDF reader on your computer. When you download the files, they are already in a PDF so make sure you have the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer. Often it needs updated periodically. This is a common issue if the Adobe isn't updated on your computer and it will help with future TpT experiences from other sellers as well. Jamie Rector has a great blog post on this to help you. Just copy/paste this web address into your browser http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

If that does not help, contact TPT Tech Support. They have a help button located in your My Purchases page and they can help you as well. If that does not work, feel free to email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com Thank you so much :)

I'm sorry you are having technical difficulties. I know that can be frustrating. The pack is definitely in good shape.

Please see the link below to get help with updating your Adobe. You can also contact me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com and I can help as well. :)

I'm not very familiar with the Literacy First Words, however, the passages cover Fry's basic sight words. I'm assuming many words cross over. Here is a link to the Fry Words. You can copy/paste this into your browser to compare the words you use with the words in the first 300 Fry List. This may help you make a better decision for your classroom. :) Thank you so much! :) Christina http://www.londonderry.org/assets/twps/sandibrown/WordList.pdf

Hi Sarah,

If you are seeing black lines on the download, this would be an Adobe issue with your PDF reader. If you copy/paste the following link, TpT has written directions for this exact problem, as it is a common issue if the Adobe is not updated frequently on the computer. It will help you with future purchases on TpT as well, from all sellers. :) Please feel free to email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com if you need further help. :) Thank you, Christina

This is a common issue if the Adobe isn't updated on your computer and it will help with future TpT experiences from other sellers as well. Jamie Rector has a great blog post on this to help you. Just copy/paste this web address into your browser http://2ndgradestuff.blogspot.com/2013/04/help-i-cant-save-or-print-my-tpt-file.html

If that does not help, contact TPT Tech Support. They have a help button located in your My Purchases page and they can help you as well. If that does not work, feel free to email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com Thank you so much :)

Hello, I purchased Read and Retell! A Reading Intervention Pack for Comprehension and Fluency for 8.00, but when I downloaded it not one of the stories was visible. Could you please send me an updated one?

Hi Paul,

I'm sorry you are having downloading issues. I know how frustrating that must be. This is actually a very common problem on TpT because of PDFs. It is a very easy fix! :) First, make sure you are using the most updated version of Adobe. That will help ensure that all of your future products on TpT download correctly. It sounds as if this is what the trouble is since you are saying you can't see the text. (Sometimes it doesn't render correctly if you aren't in the latest version.)

There is also an excellent link that will walk you through the steps of printing help. Just copy/paste this link into your browser:

If that does not help, please email me at secondgradesugarandspice@gmail.com or TpT Tech Support can help as well. :) I am sure the above steps will fix the problem though! :) Thanks so much!

Buyer re: Poetry Party! A Poetry Unit for Kids!
Hi There,
Is there a plan that goes along with this? I see lots of great ideas, but I'm VERY rusty on poetry, so it would be helpful to have a plan to follow so I don't look too out of practice.Thanks!

:) Thank you for your question. There are not lesson plans attached to the pack. It contains easy to follow practice sheets, templates, posters, and examples. I hope this helps. :) -Christina

My partners and I (and our principal) are in love with your text based evidence passages! I know you have a much easier one that we also have for interventions, but are you going to make one that is easier than the first I mentioned, but harder than the intervention one? Our "regular" first graders have a hard time with the harder passages but the others are too easy! Thanks! JEni Protain jprotain@washoeschools.net

Hi Jeni,

I can put it on my to do list but it will probably not be this school year, as I have quite a few other projects underway. The regular passages for first graders are meant to be done with high level first grade readers or as close reads. In this close read, the teacher would assist them with the passage and lots of discussion would take place. As noted, those passages are on a second and third grade Lexile level. :). Thank you so much! :) I will add it to my list for possibly next school year. :)

Thanks,

Hi Diane! :) Thank you so much for your question. I completely understand your need! :) Unfortunately I was not able to find enough clip art for "ung" but if I ever find it, or if I decide to get custom clip art created, I will add the page in the future. :) Thank you again!

:) I started a Sight Word Fluency pack for Big Kids this week. :). I hope to finish it by March. In the meantime, my winter text evidence passages are perfect for upper elementary readers who need a little push right now. They are in my store. :) Thank you! :)

Hi Shanthia,

I received your email and replied back to you. It sounds like a problem with the Adobe software you are using to open your PDFs. I included a link in the email for you. :)

HI there,
I loved trying out your sample story this week in my guided reading group. I have a silly question, would you ever e-mail me the 2nd story? My PTO is going to pay for this packet, but they don't meet until next week to ok the purchase--silly, I know. Anyways, I can wait until then, but just thought I would check if it was something you would be willing to do. Thanks, jwille@bemidji.k12.mn.us

Oppss. It's the sight word fluency bundle pack :) It was a long short week last week! WE had two snow days too!

Do you have plans to create a product for reader's whose skills are between this beginning reader's pack and the fall & winter 2nd grade packs?

Miss DeCarbo  (TpT Seller)
It is definitely something I can add to my list! :) Thank you so much. I use the second grade levels as stretch texts for my firsties to challenge them in the Common Core expectations. The new beginning reader pack will be what I use toward the beginning of next school year. I have a couple big packs underway so I'm not sure I'd be able to do it this school year. Thank you! :)

Hi!
I'm so excited about your Text Based Evidence Reading Passages Winter Edition... I've downloaded it, but the text and images on the passage pages is blurry... the first couple of pages with the example and directions looks fine.
My Adobe is up to date and my other pdfs are fine... has anyone else reported this? Do you have any tips?
Thanks so much,
Frances Vachon

Hi Fraces, Oh my I'm so sorry that I am just now seeing this question. I am usually so good at answering that very day. It sounds like you are having printing problems. TpT has a great link for this. Copy/paste the link below into your browser for help. :)

When others have reported this, it has only been because they had a Mac and needed a different version of Adobe. :)
