Who is this product geared towards?
This packet was created for a 1st grade classroom, but it includes three different levels of reading passages. The on-level passage will work well for the majority of 1st graders, while the beginning level works best for struggling 1st graders or kindergarteners. The highest level passages work well for advanced 1st graders or on-level 2nd graders. You may download a the sample to get an idea of the levels of each passage.
How can I use this product in my classroom?
This is a HUGE TIMESAVER when planning for small group reading lessons each week. With the three levels of differentiation, I can use the same topic for almost all of my reading groups. I use these weekly during my small group reading lessons, but they would also work well in whole group or independent work.
What are teachers saying about this product?
"This is one of the best purchases I've made on TPT! It allows you to use the same "Power Words" or vocabulary with your class, but the passages using the vocabulary are written at 3 different reading levels allowing all students to access the content! It also contains a written option and reading response for each reading. Wow! This has saved me so much time! Thank you!" -Sharon
"This is an AMAZING resource for guided reading. I love the prediction pages with a picture that really help the students stay focused on the topic. Also, I love telling them their writing goal for the week which is included." -Nicole
"These passages are wonderful for comprehension in terms of teaching to look back in the text. I also love the vocabulary piece. The graphic organizers are great too. The passages are just the right length and the topics keep my guided reading group engaged! Thanks!" -June
"One of the BEST resources I have ever bought from TPT (and trust me I have bought ALOT)!! This has everything you can hope for! Absolutely no prep needed for your daily guided reading FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR! Having three different passages for each story at three different levels is amazing! This allows all the students in the class to practice the same reading skill, and learn about the same topic, but at a level that is good for them. LOVE LOVE LOVE this and use this almost everyday throughout the year!"
