Product Description
Directions: Included are a series of Really Silly Stories (RSS) broken into sections. 50 to 60-word sections. Students are to read one section every day. In each section, 30 and 40-word increments are designated with bold-faced type and underlines. The first underlined word = 30 words. The second underlined word = 40 words.
First, read the entire section out loud for students. Then, students reads that day’s excerpt out loud independently. Stop at the student’s designated target level (either 30 or 40 words). Do this 3 times, recording the time after each reading. Record daily times on a graph.

Students should start out at 30 words. When students consistently reach 12 seconds, move up to the next level.) If working in small groups, students should partner. One student is the timer while the other student is the reader. After three attempts, students change roles.

The next day: The next day, have students review the previous day’s story excerpt (either silently or out loud). Then, move to that days story excerpt. Use the repeated reading technique described above.
