PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This bundle contains 5 original fluency passages I wrote and 3-4 comprehension and extension activities to accompany each one. The theme is garden creatures and it is just right for spring time!

Using one fluency passage per week, this would provide interventions for 5 weeks. You could also focus on one fluency passage per day, depending on your needs and schedule. These materials could be used as whole group or small group fluency instruction or as homework. For each passage there is a teacher copy that you can print in color and reuse. There is also a black and white copy that you can print off for each student and record their scores on it. The comprehension questions and activities allow students to spend time on each selection and participate in close reading strategies to build reading skills. It draws upon Bloom’s Taxonomy to encourage higher levels of thinking skills.

Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Levels range from 4.2-4.5 and are in chronological order. They are all on a fourth grade reading level.

*Suggestion for Use for Small Group Intervention*
These fluency passages, comprehension questions and extension activities can be used as a reading intervention using the hot, warm and cold read strategy. For each week and fluency passage, it would look something like this:

Day 1: Cold read, discussion, comprehension questions (Lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Remembering and Understanding)
Day 2: Warm read, discussion, comprehension questions or activity (Middle levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Applying and Analyzing)
Day 3: Hot read, discussion, extension activity (Highest levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Evaluating and Creating).

The genres of the fluency passages are all non-fiction, informational text. The materials in this packet are aligned to several fourth Grade Common Core Language Arts standards.

I tried to make the fluency passages a little more fun and interesting than other ones I’ve used. I included my fluency progress monitoring graph to track students’ fluency progress with this packet. I also included labels for file folders to create “fluency files” for each student.

I also tried to make this a great value for you!
