As an elementary teacher, I never feel like I have enough time to give each subject its due time, particularly science. To that end, I developed resources for my students to use during our language arts block that reinforced science content and vocabulary while students improved their reading fluency.
This file contains reading passages designed for oral reading fluency practice. There are passages about three types of Christmas/Holiday plants: mistletoe, poinsettias, and Christmas trees. Each passage is available on multiple reading levels to allow the teacher to better match students' reading needs.
Students work individually or in pairs and they graph their progress each time they practice. There is also a class tracking sheet included for the teacher.
