Fluency & Comprehension Reading Intervention for All Seasons: Second Grade Level
Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Levels range from 2.1-2.9 in chronological order. They are all on a second grade reading level.
This bundle contains 35 original fluency passages I wrote and 2-3 comprehension and extension activities to accompany each one. Using one fluency passage per week, this would provide interventions for the whole school year. 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.

*How to Use*
These fluency passages, comprehension questions and extension activities were designed to use 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).
It is always my goal to design the intervention to follow this format, but it is easier with some text and activities than others.
These materials could be used in other ways as well including as whole group fluency instruction or as homework. The genres of the fluency passages include poetry, fiction and informational text. The materials in this packet are aligned to several Second Grade Common Core Language Arts standards.
I also try to make the fluency passages a little more fun 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. There is also 3 pages of ideas for creation/extension activities for day 3.
***This packet contains the “Blue Whales” Fluency Passage, Comprehension Activities & Craft Outlines, as well as Mother’s Day Fluency Interventions and Craft packet (“Why I Love My Mom”), which are both sold in my store individually. ***
I wanted to make this a great value for you. One fluency passage and comprehension questions is $2.00 in my store and in this bundle each passage and accompanying activities are less than $0.50 each.
