This digital download includes parts of a full reading program I developed to help struggling students read confidently with good comprehension and fluency.
Before reading each passage, my students practice their chunk sounds in Chunk Chart 1, using the "chunk cheer." Then I give them about 1 minute to highlight all the chunks they can find in the passage. They read the passage through two or three times until they can read it smoothly and with expression. Then they answer the questions.
My students really enjoy having their own chapter books, which they can personalize with illustrations of their own creation! They are also willing to tackle harder stories when the text is broken into less intimidating, shorter chapters. They are so proud when they finish!
This digital download comes with 7 stories (4 fiction and 3 nonfiction) in chapter book format that you can print! Stories cover chunks featured in Chunk Chart 1 (also included) from our complete reading program (The Chunk Decoding and Spelling program).
Highlights to note:
- Each book chapter concludes with quiz questions that directly relate back to the chapter text.
- Each chapter also includes space for students to illustrate a scene from text they have just read.
- Download comes with a copy of Chunk Chart 1, featuring the main letter patterns students will be practicing in the story.
- Each chapter book has teacher key with chunks underlined
