- Bundle Description
No-prep reading review that works with any pacing guide or curriculum!
Note: This resource now includes digital versions for distance learning and remote teaching! Please read the section near the end of the description about the digital versions to make sure they will work for your needs.
Real Talk - My students and I have never found success with most pre-packaged spiral reading reviews. Most of these reading reviews spiral reading skills in ways that don't match my pacing or the needs of my students. This just frustrates my students and takes away from my instruction time explaining these skills before giving the reviews.
Reading review that is skill-based and able to be mix and matched to fit YOUR needs!
This BUNDLE of fiction and informational reading reviews works with any pacing guide or curriculum because:
- The printables (used daily or weekly) are skill-based, and each printable focuses on a specific skill or set of related skills.
- You can mix and match the review printables to create a reading review that is truly customized to your needs, the needs of your students, and your pacing guide demands.
Note: This 4th and 5th grade reading review is rigorous and the texts are available at multiple levels. If you have a lot of struggling readers, this probably will not fit their needs without significant support.
Each printable includes 2 pages which includes:
- The text - written at a 4th/5th grade reading level
- A set of directions for annotating
- Four questions that specifically address/review the skill
Informational Reading Review - 34 Review Pages
Fiction Reading Review - 28 Review Pages
This reading review will give you more than enough reading review practice to support your students all year!

***There are also a few pages of review that address a variety of fiction and nonfiction skills. I recommend using these reading review printables after you have taught all of the skills in each pack
To make this resource even more accessible, I have included two versions.
•Questions/tasks are labeled with days (Monday-Friday).
•Monday is always annotating the text.
•Each day, the students reread the text and answer a new question.
•This version works best for morning work or another daily task.
•Questions/tasks are numbered and not labeled by days.
•The first task is always annotating the text.
•Rereading is not needed since the students can answer all of the questions in one sitting.
•This version is the most flexible and can be used for any purpose (assessment, reteaching, small-group work, homework, etc.).
Google Classroom Version
This resource now includes a Google Classroom version of the reviews. This version is only included for Version 2 (the pages that are not labeled by day).
The Google Classroom Slides are grouped by skill. You will find the links for each skill in the file titled Google Classroom Links in the folder (after saving it to your computer and extracting the files).
Since here are several pages for each skill, you will need to delete any pages you don't want to assign at the moment. Click here for more information about assigning Google Slides.
Fillable PDF Version:
This resource includes two versions of the PDFs with fillable form fields. Each PDF is fillable for students to respond to the text they read.
Each file can be easily shared with students via email, Google Drive, Google Classroom, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and more.
Share files with your whole class to review different skills each week or customize your students’ learning based on their individual needs. These interactive PDFs can easily be used as independent practice, homework, or self-paced classwork.
Fillable PDF forms may be opened and "filled in" on a variety of devices and operating systems. Be sure to have the latest version of Adobe Reader in order to use all of the features the program has. You can find more information about Adobe Reader or download it now by visiting https://get.adobe.com/reader/.
These files also have the ability for you to leave comments and sticky notes for your students. Remember to save your changes prior to sharing them with your students.
Be sure to avoid opening the PDF within your browser when adding content. A fillable PDF form needs to be saved to your device or drive, then completed. If you do not save it beforehand, you risk losing your work. Fillable PDF forms will not be automatically saved. If your students are used to working within applications that autosave, be sure to remind them of this in your directions.
