Product Description
Need a fun SUMMER reading fluency + comprehension passage and questions students LOVE? Download Flying Couches for your classroom! It's a CRAZY, rhythmical passage written to the tune of a Dr. Seuss. Students will takeoff into the air atop their couch and travel the world.





There are two newly included AUDIOBOOKS. One does NOT have my usual sound effects in order to keep the rhyming flow. The second follows my silly way of doing things and has a longer sound between each stanza to help break it up for listeners.

----------
PRODUCT UPDATE 5/14/18: Download this update to receive the two audiobooks (one no sound for flow), creative writing prompt, and "Draw the book Cover".
----------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Make students SMILE and LAUGH!
ASK core-based questions that focus on reading skills.

WHAT LEVEL IS THIS?
--------------------------
This passage is best recommended for 3rd grade, but also for STRONG and or G/T 2nd, or early 4th. Lower reading levels can still enjoy this story with the audiobook reading aloud to them.

What about 1st grade? A very special group of my former firsties heard this story before anyone else and loved it. Yours will too, however, most of them will need to hear it aloud. It's the perfect chance to try the audiobook!
