My class has to take assessments (I-Station) where they need to be quick with finding the correct word to fill in the blank. We like to practice using these stories by sitting together during guided reading and trying to think about our answers and getting faster and better every time!
Guided reading time is PERFECT to use these passage puzzles! Read the story together and try to figure out which word goes into the blanks to make the story sound right.
Then, flip the page over for some COMPREHENSION questions! They will also get writing practice when they give their own opinion about the topic of the story!
Also included are three SENTENCE SCRAMBLES: sentences that you can work on putting in the correct order! Guided reading is the perfect time for this as well or during centers once they're getting better at reading on their own! When they've unscrambled them, have them write them too. Such amazing practice for them, especially because you’re there to correct any mistakes for instant feedback!
Story topics in the January Pack:
• New Year
• Returning to School from Winter Break
• Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
• Opinion about Winter
Let me know what you think! Leave feedback for TPT credit to use in the future!
