The research tells us that the more ways we engage students in reading and text, the more likely the information will find its way into their long-term memory. Reading Response activities gives you instant feedback on how your students are doing and it also gives students something meaningful to do while reading. This reading packet is appropriate for Kindergarteners who need to be challenged, First Graders, and Second Graders who need reinforcement and remediation.
I have included some word work for the beginning and ending sound of S/s. There is also word work for the Short A/a sound. Additionally, there is a daily fluency check. The Monday check is a cold read; the student has not seen the passage before. Then, subsequent reads will get better as the child has repeated readings. The goal is to see the Monday cold read scores improve.
