Product Description

Looking for passages to enhance your Arctic unit?

You'll want the passages in this pack! It is the PERFECT compliment to an Arctic Animals Unit. These non-fiction texts would pair beautifully with fiction texts you're reading that feature animals of the arctic, or winter! :) Wonderful as enrichment, whole group instruction or even small group! Take a look! The preview includes a sample.

There are 10 passages. I've provided a conversion chart that is specific to the passages. I've lexiled each individual passage and aligned them to AR, DRA & Fountas & Pinnell. You can give your students something to read for their nightly fluency that meets their needs or work with them in class on it too! :)

On each fluency sheet, there is a grid for you or a parent to log how many words per minute the student reads, and some scaffolded comprehension questions for the students as well. The questions are rigorous and provide opportunities for the students to discuss their thinking about the text with their parents--rather than provide a yes or no answer. Each page has numbered lines for ease of grading!

Each fluency passage has both oral and written comprehension questions. The written comprehension questions include text coding and even a 'research' question! Students will not be able to get the answer directly from the text...they will have to seek out an additional source. I can tell you that item has been a hit with my learners!

This Arctic Fluency Set features the following topics:

Alaska

The Iditarod

The Importance of Sled Dogs

Endangered Animals

Glaciers

The Inuit

The Arctic

Arctic Transportation
