PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Christmas around the Word Fluency Passages

This file contains 8 fluency passages about Christmas around the world. Each fluency passage comes with 3 accompanying comprehension activities which draw upon Bloom's Taxonomy. The Christmas traditions described in the passages are from the following countries; France, Mexico, England, Germany, Italy, Canada, Sweden and the United States.

The fluency passages range from 3.4 - 3.8 Flesch Kincaid readability levels. They are all on a third grade reading level.

You could use this file for whole group instruction, small group intervention, or even homework. You can use 1 fluency passage per day, or 2 fluency passages per week. For each passage there is a teacher copy that you can print in color and reuse. There is also a black and white copy that you can print off for each student and record their scores on it. The comprehension questions and activities allow students to spend time on each selection and participate in close reading strategies to build reading skills. It draws upon Bloom’s Taxonomy to encourage higher levels of thinking skills.

*How to Use*
These fluency passages, comprehension questions and extension activities were designed to use as a reading intervention to use with the hot, warm and cold read strategy. For each fluency passage, it would look something like this:

1) Cold read, discussion, comprehension questions (Lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Remembering and Understanding)
2) Warm read, discussion, comprehension questions or activity (Middle levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Applying and Analyzing)
3) Hot read, discussion, extension activities (Highest levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Evaluating and Creating).

The materials in this packet are aligned to several third Grade Common Core Language Arts standards.

I try to make my fluency passages a little more fun than other ones I’ve used and who doesn't love Christmas? I included my fluency progress monitoring graph to track students’ fluency progress with this packet. I also included labels for file folders to create “fluency files” for each student.

***This product describes Christmas traditions around the world and therefore highlights topics with religious themes such as nativities, the Christmas story, and baby Jesus. The passages are not written in a persuasive manner, but rather in an informational manner, and would be appropriate to use in a public school if you chose to do so.
