Why Teachers Love It!

☺ A dose of daily review helps build, strengthen, and review reading comprehension skills all year.

☺Students focus on one passage per week, digging deeper each day! Ideal for Close Reading

☺All passages are on grade level! (Perfect for exposure to grade-level texts)

☺Questions are text-dependent and slowly increase in rigor as the week progresses.

☺ The daily assignments are meaningful and NOT overwhelming.

☺ The progress monitoring section holds students accountable for their own learning.

☺ Parents appreciate the consistency of the homework (if using as homework).

☺ Teachers can easily see where students are still struggling on a regular basis

☺ It's Editable - change questions or wording to differentiate and fit your students' needs.

☺ Teachers find students need almost NO test-prep before standardized testing when using this resource all year.

☺ Homework completion rates increase! (if using as homework)

How is this Spiral Review Resource Different From Others?

✔This spiral review was strategically designed so that students DO NOT see standards they HAVE NOT been exposed to. (expecting students to complete work they have never been taught is not effective and can increase frustration)

✔All Passages were written by a professional author.

✔Each week’s homework requires less paper (only 1-2 pages)! This helps schools and teachers save on copies while still providing meaningful review.

✔This resource is EDITABLE (Microsoft Word). You can easily edit, copy, paste, or delete all questions (stories are not editable). Use these sheets to customize the perfect daily review system for your classroom!

✔It's also NO-Prep! If you aren't looking to edit the sheets, you can use the "easy print" option in the file to just print and go.

✔I am ALWAYS updating this resource to make it even more effective. If you decide to purchase this resource, you will receive ALL future updates for FREE! Education is always changing and so is this resource!

Using This Spiral Reading Resource as HOMEWORK!

Give each student a homework sheet on Monday. They will complete one section each night (Monday through Thursday). At the beginning of class each day, I like to take about 10 minutes to review the previous night's homework and clarify any questions my students may have. Students use the "My Progress" section to keep track of how they are doing and it helps hold them accountable for their own learning. Another option is to review the homework during guided reading groups. This is a great time to dig deeper into the questions and text to see where students are struggling.

For more info and tips on making your homework system effective, check out this blog post {CLICK HERE}

Using This Spiral Reading Resource as MORNING WORK!

Each morning, students complete just one section (Monday through Thursday). Before beginning the day, I take about 10 minutes to review that day's work. This gives students time to monitor their own progress and to ask questions.

Using This Spiral Reading Resource as DAILY READING REVIEW

If you don’t want to use this as homework or morning work, I recommend using it as a daily review in small reading groups. On the first day, read the weekly text with your group. Each day, dig into the 4 questions that accompany the passage. This will help you see exactly how students are doing each day and where you need to focus your daily lessons. Rereading the text works great with Close Reading and helps students strengthen their comprehension skills.
