This digital version of this resource was created using Google Forms. You must have a Google email for use. Each passage can be assigned in Google Classrooms. It is ideal for distance learning. I also include the print file so you can have a physical copy of the pages when you are back in school with your students.

Each passage contains five components -

  • A teacher passage with numbered columns and a chart to record words correct and errors daily.
  • A student copy that has a larger font for the students to read off of while you record on the teacher's sheet.
  • A reading comprehension sheet that contains three questions in a short answer format. This would be perfect for any reading interventions (RTI) you are conducting in your classroom.
  • Graphs for the students to record their cold and hot read in blue or red so they can keep track of their progress.
  • A weekly parent reading log will help parents practice and record the fluency passage practice at home.
