Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Level: 5.4

*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 (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 have students use the writing template to complete the story about what might happen when St. Claus catches the rowdy reindeer.

The clipart used in this product was created by:

Special Education Teacher Binder Editable {Templates, Data Collection & More}

I created this product because I am an Intervention Specialist who likes (tries) to be organized and who likes things to be pretty. This folder contains 2 editable PowerPoints and I also added the main 2 fonts I used to create the documents for your convenience. You can use the fonts to edit your binder and for any other personal and classroom use.  Click on the picture for the link to the item in my store!

original-1350462-1

Contents:
One portrait PowerPoint (46 pages) that contains 10 binder divider pages including 2 cover pages, IEPs, 504 Plans, Condensed IEPs, Behavior Plans, Student Data, Calendars, Parent Communication Log, and Lesson Plans. There are also templates to use in each of those sections of your binders. Additionally, there are 6 editable binder divider pages in this PowerPoint, and 3 pages of inspirational quotes.

One landscape PowerPoint (47 pages) that contains 12 calendar templates (for each month) and additional templates to use in each of the divider sections. There are also 6 pages of landscape editable binder divider pages.

A main component of this file are the progress monitoring forms (49 total) that are in both slideshows. These forms are for tracking progress various skills for students K-5. All the pages are editable in the slideshows by adding textboxes wherever you’d like to add text. I have already added textboxes on the editable binder divider pages, but not on the other templates. If you want the text you add to match the binder divider pages, download and install CKRounded and CKPurple, which are both included in the file. I created most of the progress monitoring forms to be printed and written on, which is how I use them when I assess students. For other templates, such as the behavior plan template, etc. you can add textboxes to edit the documents. If you’d like the fonts to match, download CKFonts (sets 1-5) available for free in my store for personal and classroom use, and match them to the document you are editing.

I hope you love this file and that it helps you keep things organized and pretty! 😉 If you need any help, email me at ckeimer@hotmail.com. If you like it, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your feedback and follows.

Have a great school year!

Fluency & Comprehension Reading Intervention Bundle for Grades 1-3

I created this bundle for those of us who provide reading intervention for multiple grade levels.  This bundle includes the Fluency and Comprehension Reading Intervention for All Seasons First, Second and Third Grade Packets.  Click on the picture for the link to the product in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

bundle

bundle 4 bundle 3 bundle 2

Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Levels range from 1.1-1.9 for the first grade packet, 2.1-2.9 for the second grade packet and 3.1-3.9 for the third grade packet.  They are all in chronological order.

Each of the 3 packets 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 3 grade levels.  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 First, Second and Third 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. For each packet there are also 3 pages of ideas for creation/extension activities for day 3.

Of course, I wanted to make this a great value for you. You are getting the 3 grade level packets for over 20% off the discounted price and over 40% off the original price.

***This packet includes any First, Second or Third Grade Fluency Passage that is sold individually in my store. ***

~If you like this, please rate me on TpT or follow me. Ask any questions before purchase please. You can e-mail me at ckeimer@hotmail.com or use the questions link on TpT. If you already purchased the grade level packets individually, just email me.  I am so happy to share this with you!

FYI…

“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.  All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.”

Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Take care.  😉
