Spiral review of reading skills is extremely important to ensure that students obtain and maintain mastery throughout the school year. However, it is difficult to use prepackaged spiral reading reviews due to pacing or specific needs of classes.
For that reason, I created this spiral reading review (This set is fiction skills only) that will work with any pacing guide or reading curriculum.
This resource includes 28 reviews (Each review is 2 pages). Depending on the version you choose to use, you can use this for up to 28 weeks of reading review.
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
•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 customized to your needs.
•Story Elements (4)
•Character Traits (3)
•Context Clues (3)
•Figurative Language (3)
•Point of View (4)
***There are also 5 pages of review that address a variety of fiction skills (labeled as Fiction Skills Review on the table of contents). I recommend using these after you have taught all of the fiction skills listed above.
Depending on the version (see the preview or below section for information about the two versions) you choose, this reading review can be used for:
•Questions/tasks are labeled with days (Monday-Friday).
•Monday is always annotating the text. (Digital version is summarizing)
•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. (Digital version is summarizing)
•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.).
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.
This resource includes two versions of 28 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, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and any other secure platform.
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.
