We called these packets our "Lucky Listeners" packets in first grade! My littles loved Lucky Listener time, and in a matter of about 15 minutes a day, all of my readers showed improvement in reading fluency and comprehension.
**New to these 2016 packets is a 'running record' for individual use, and reading cards that are short portions of the story, making these perfect for homeschooling and tutoring situations.
The Lucky Listeners packet has one reading passage to be read multiple times daily (tracking, choral, individual, and limited choral) along with 4 vocabulary development sheets featuring words from the story. Because students are also required to have a reading buddy, they are allowed to practice listening skills. Partnering for these packets works best if the partnership is a low with a medium or a medium with a high. Low with high is frustrating and unsuccessful for both students.
Use a new packet each week and watch your students' reading skills improve.
