State testing is coming up, here in Ohio at least! Just about six weeks left to prepare students. I wrote this Testing Passing Rap to try to make it a little fun for them.
3 Day Fluency/Comprehension Reading Intervention
This is an original fluency passage I wrote and comprehension/extension activities to accompany it. This package includes a teacher copy that you can print in color and reuse. It also includes a black and white copy that you can print off for each student and record their scores on it. There are low level comprehension questions, higher level comprehension questions, and a short writing activity.
Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Level: 3.1
*How to Use*
This was designed to use as a reading intervention using the hot, warm and cold read strategy. It would look something like this:
Day 1: Cold read, discussion, first page of comprehension questions (Lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy including Remembering and Understanding)
Day 2: Warm read, discussion, second page of 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). On this day I would have students do the test taking tips writing activity to use as a reminder to read before tests.
I wrote this passage to help prepare my third graders for state testing, which they take in the fall and in the spring. I hope you like it! You can use my fluency progress monitoring graph available for free in my store to track students’ fluency progress with this passage.
I am so happy to share my stuff with you! Good luck on state testing!
