Cloze Passages for Beginning Readers BUNDLE
My Cloze Passages for Beginning Readers worked so well with my struggling readers last year, that I decided to make some more!
Cloze passages (think “closure”) are an excellent resource for remediating beginning readers. Many readers over-rely on visual or phonetic cues when decoding text. Because cloze passages require students to think about “what makes sense” in the sentence, they force readers to use meaning and structure cues. This encourages more efficient decoding and keeps the focus on comprehension.
I would use these activities in small group guided reading or a strategy group. They also can be used for early finishers, as a center activity, or as an assessment. Answer keys are included in order to make them self-checking.
