It's not editable due to the fonts that we're purchased and need to be protected. The format wouldn't be secure either. :( Sorry!!

I am very interested in purchasing your product. If you could please clarify something for me: the individual packets contain 4 roll-a-story charts for each month, but the bundle only contains 2 roll-a-story charts for each month? I would really like to use this for my writing stations--please help me understand. Thanks so much! :)

Update 7/17/14
Thank you my brain was still on vacation-mode and I misread. I look forward to implementing this in my classroom in September. So excited!

Buyer re: "Daily Fluency" Activity Pack (September - October)
Hello Ms. Jordan,

I'm a 2nd Grade teacher. whose is interested in purchasing your Sept/Oct. packet for one of my Daily 5 Centers. As I looked at a sample of one of the pages, the words were ones only my students who were above grade level could read. Even those students might have a hard time with the words. Does this Sept. packet have material or below and on grade level 2nd Grade readers?

The September/October packet focuses on sight words. The November/December packet goes into basic vowel patterns which I think would be better for your lower readers. If you feel the sight words are too hard I would start with that one. I often pick the packet based on my students. The packets can be mixed and matched and aren't specific To the months.

Email me with additional questions msjordanreads@gmail.com! Hope this helps!

I am impressed with your packets but looking for something specifically for Kinder. Many of the sentences and passages seem too hard. Do you have anything more specific for Kinders?
February 20, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
MsJordanReads
MsJordanReads  (TpT Seller)
I don't have a lower-level Fluency Boot Camp product. Is there a specific activity you need modified? I have Daily Fluency primary packets that could work but probably will be a little too hard -- September/October is sight word focused and November/December starts with basic short vowel patterns - still would be for upper-level Kinder though. Probably too hard for your whole class. The accuracy word pairs could build accuracy with fluency or perhaps could be used as cards with the Fluency Boot Camp. Any Fry words and phrase cards could be used. Let me know which activities in particular. Did you purchase the product already? If not, perhaps I'll work on a lower-level one to put in my store. Email me and I'll see if I can develop something that would work for you. msjordanreads@gmail.com

In the mean time, check out my blog post for other resources. A blog reader commented and I shared additional resources in response to 2nd grade materials. Maybe some could work for you at the Kinder level? http://msjordanreads.com/2012/02/26/fluency-boot-camp/.

The focus of both products is fluency, not comprehension. Check out the previews if you want to see sample pages for each.

Fluency Boot Camp includes a lot of drill and practice using words, phrases, and sentences, but they're not part of a passage and the activities don't include a comprehension component.

Daily Fluency is exactly what the preview files show (if you're looking at the bundle page, click the link for the individual pages so you can seethe samples). It is a one-page activity sheet containing words and sentences. They do need to self-monitor for meaning and accuracy but there is no comprehension focus.

Email me at msjordanreads@gmail.com with additional questions or if you need more clarification!

Chances are it's an Adobe issue. Try updating your version of Adobe Reader (via the Adobe website or your version of the program). Also, if you are on a Mac, do not open with Preview. It will not work. Download the most updated version of Adobe Reader and open the file from the application.

Email me at msjordanreads@gmail.com if you still have issues. I can try emailing the file to you if you send me your email address. Sometimes the file gets weird because I use a lot of different fonts, but the Adobe update or Mac issue usually solves it.

If you want, you can also contact TpT via their contact form. Their tech department is great with troubleshooting. I don't know of other suggestions!! Those two have always solved it. Some people download on a different computer to see if that helps. You could always try that?

Unless its a technical error or an accidental double purchase, TpT doesn't typically do returns. Since you JUST bought the products this morning, during the sale, and since the 20% bundle would give you two packets for free, I would be willing to send you two packets if you go ahead and purchase two more. You would still get the extra 10% off from the code. If this works for you, email me at msjordanreads@gmail.com once you've purchased a total of 4 packets. Please include your TpT username so I can verify your purchases and then I'll send you the remaining products!

If fluency is a target you're working on, I would definitely recommend the Fluency Boot Camp materials for an incoming fifth grader. The activities are perfect for a tutoring situation. You can use them by themselves or in conjunction with other materials.

Feel free to check out my blog post for how to implement this boot camp: http://msjordanreads.com/2012/02/26/fluency-boot-camp/ (Many free resources are included in this post to use with Fluency Boot Camp!)

If you're looking for more... check out my other fluency materials to supplement the Fluency Boot Camp. I have "Daily Fluency" packets, speed drill packets, and much more at my store! They are not necessary for Fluency Boot Camp but definitely provide additional practice opportunities. (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Msjordanreads/Category/Fluency)

Unfortunately the file is a PDF and you're not able to type your own sentences.

I am going to purchase the fluency boot camp that you just posted to use with 3rd and 4th grade students during summer school. These students are in danger of retention because of their reading level. Summer School is 1/2 day.

I totally understand out of pocket costs! If you check out my blog post (linked also in FB) there are many free resources I linked up to that can be used to supplement (Florida Research Center has a TON!). There's nothing in my store that you HAVE to have but many people love the speed drill word list packets to practice pace and the Daily Fluency packets for warm ups (I'm working on the June/July packets but none if them are season specific so you can go out of order!). There is a Beginner and Intermediate level for each Daily Fluency packet. Also, I'm sure you saw, but this week is my sale so you can get these items 28% off! Again, none if them are necessary if you want to explore the free options out there! Let me know if you have any other questions.

This product is exactly what I am looking for, but I am wondering if it is appropriate for first graders? I notice grade 1 isn't listed. Or if you have one that would be more appropriate? Thanks! Beth

Beth,

Although I listed this product for grades 2+, there are many K/1 teachers who have purchased this product and found it to be appropriate for their students. I guess it depends on the reading level of your first graders. If the students you intend to use this product with have basic sight word recognition and are starting to build fluency, I would say this product would be great. Mid-first grade would be my starting point if I worked with that grade level. I use many of the activities with my struggling 2nd graders and it has helped tremendously. You can modify what/how you use it, too!

Hope this helps! I wish we could email individual customers because I would love for you to ask some of the first grade teachers who have reviewed this product. Feel free to read some of their reviews in the feedback section. The product thumbnail preview may be helpful too, so you can look at the word cards and materials.

Email me msjordanreads@gmail.com if you have more questions of need more details!

The packets are not season specific and you can start them at any point! Many of my students have been using them since November but others are just starting next week. Once you teach the activities the students can work at their own pace (which is great if they're ever absent or you miss a day!).

The remaining packets for the year should be done soon, but try one packet out and see how your students do with the activities first!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

It should be fixed now! Again, SO sorry for the tech glitch. I'm still not sure what happened, but it should work. If it STILL doesn't, please email me and I'll get the product to you via email. I'm hoping everything is good now though. :)

Thanks for understanding!

UPDATE: It looks like there's a glitch now when I tried to re-upload! I'm so sorry. Not sure why this is happening. I will fix it when I get home later this afternoon since I don't have my TpT USB with me at school. I will get it fixed RIGHT after school and will notify you via TpT when its fixed!!

Morning! I purchased this last night and have tried multiple times to open it after it's downloaded. The message indicates it's damaged or something. Is it ok on your end?

This isn't a question but I wanted to let you know that I love your fluency products and think they're genius! I'm using the Fluency Bootcamp right now and am going to purchase your January/February Daily Fluency stuff.

If you are not a National Board Certified Teacher, you should really consider it. The Early/Middle Childhood Literacy Language-Arts certification is right up your alley! Keep up the good work :)

I never got a chance to thank you for your very kind comment from a few weeks ago. It truly means a lot to me and appreciate your feedback. I'm not Nationally Board Certified but will definitely look into it! I love creating products for my students (especially fluency products) and I'm glad you're able to find value in them, too! :)

Thank you, again!

I absolutely LOVE your idea with the Accuracy Word Pairs!! You mentioned on the page that you would be willing to make another set of these? I am MORE than interested!! I am so impressed with all of your products and look forward to making several purchases ... including your Daily Fluency Activity Packs as well. Such an amazing idea. I am so glad that I found your page on here and can't believe I went this long without knowing of your products! I am definitely spreading the word to others!! Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing back about more of the word pairs!!

Update 2/7: The new product is almost done! I've added 16 accuracy word pair pages along with assessment & tracking resources! It will be a very comprehensive packet. if all goes well with the finishing touches, I'll be posting it tonight!

Thank you for your feedback! I am so glad that you find Accuracy Word Pairs as useful as I do. I use them a lot with students who have difficulty self-monitoring and for those who make a lot of visual errors when they read. I'd be happy to make an additional set. I will work on them this week. I'll try to have it posted by Wednesday! :) Feel free to email me at msjordanreads@gmail.com if you have additional questions or requests!

Hi, I am very interested in your Daily Fluency Activity packs. However, I only see separate products for November-February. Are the other months out of the school year available. MORE IMPORTANTLY- is there a bundle?

MsJordanReads  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for your interest! You're right... November/December and January/February are the only ones available in my store right now but March/April is almost done. I've been creating them each month for my own students and am hoping to get the remaining packets done in the next month. At that point I will most likely bundle.

It's up to you if you want to wait. There will be a total of 6 since I will be making ones for the summer months.

All available ones can be found here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Msjordanreads/Category/Daily-Fluency-Activity-Pack

Let me know if you have any additional questions! If you follow my store here or on FB you'll see updates when the products become available.

Buyer re: "Daily Fluency" Activity Pack (November - December)
Hello,
Love your Daily Fluency Activity Packs. The previews look great, and I am planning on purchasing your packs for Jan/Feb and Nov/Dec. Do you sell Daily Fluency Activity Packs for any other months? I am a Resource Room teacher and could use BOTH levels of any versions you have - I can't seem to find Sept/Oct, March/April, etc?

Many thanks,
Kristen

I'm working on them for the remaining months for both levels- Beginner & Intermediate! I just started creating them for my own students this past November and am hoping to finish the remaining months soon, especially now that I know there is interest. The nice thing is they are not season specific. I'm still using November & December packets with some of my students I don't see as frequently.

Hope this helps! Thank you for your interest and be sure to check back soon! :)

I am having trouble printing too. Some of the last sheets have print over print on them when they come out or I get an error message on my school printer and it freezes. Ever happen before? I am going to try from my home printer rather than at school and I hope this will solve the problem. Good resource! Thanks.

I've never heard of a problem with overlapping print, just blurry pages. Perhaps an update of your Adobe would solve this? Try printing at home and if that still doesn't work please let me know. We can involve the TpT tech support team if necessary! Email me at msjordanreads@gmail.com if you're still having issues.
