Wise Owl reading workbooks go from the reading readiness level to hard second grade reading level. My aim in writing these workbooks was to help individualize the teaching of reading. You may have students who need more advanced lessons, as well as students who are struggling. This reading placement test will let you know which of the Wise Owl workbooks is the right one for each student. The tests include: alphabet recognition, word recognition, word comprehension, sentence comprehension, story comprehension, phonics tests from beginning sounds to vowel sounds. The PDF includes directions for each test. *This book has been revised on 5-3-15 to include a second grade test.
The workbooks are:
'Wise Owl's Reading Readiness' - Alphabet recognition and learning to print
'The Alphabet Throughout the Year' - Seasonal ABC charts and letter recognition practice
'Wise Owl's First Phonics and First 100 Sight Words' - Easy first grade reading material
'Wise Owl's Consonant Digraphs and Blends' - This can be used to give extra practice for the blends taught in the easy first grade level book.
'Wise Owl's Vowels and Sight Words' - Harder first grade level reading material
'Wise Owl's Vowels Extra Practice Stories' - This goes along with the hard first grade reading workbook and provides extra practice on the phonics and sight word lessons.
'Wise Owl's Moving Up' - Easy second grade reading
'Wise Owl's Moving Up Extra Practice Stories'
'Wise Owl's Moving On' - Harder second grade reading
'Wise Owl's Moving On Extra Practice Stories'
'Wise Owl's Homonyms' - Second grade reading level extra.
The placement test will suggest one of the above books, with the exception of the extra practice workbooks and 'Alphabet Throughout the Year'.
