Number Identification and Counting Packet {Zoo Animals Theme}

This number identification and counting packet has a zoo animals theme and is aligned with several Kindergarten Common Core Math Standards.

Contents:
This packet includes flashcards for numerals 0-20 and flashcards with the corresponding number of animals on each. You can use these cards for memory and matching games, practice and review, assessment, etc. There are 10 worksheets that have ten frames and students are to count the number animals and write the number (0-10) on the line. There are 10 worksheets with blank ten frames where students are to draw the number given (0-10). You can have students use mini stamps, draw circles, etc. to complete these pages. Next, there are 10 worksheets that have ten frames and students are to count the number animals and write the number (10-20) on the line. Then there are 10 worksheets with blank ten frames where students are to draw the number given (10-20). All the worksheets are in black and white or grayscale to save ink. There are zebra print posters for numbers 0-20. For numbers 1-9, I used animals to show the touch points based on the TouchMath® counting strategy. For numbers 0 and 10-20, there is a picture representing the number. Print the posters and laminate them to display in your classroom. Also included are 10 Roll and Cover game boards for numbers 0-10 and 10 Roll and Cover game boards for numbers 0-20. To play the game, I would cover the six sides of all the dice with a white label so that this side represents 0 and the other sides represent 1-5. Have students use 2 dice for the 0-10 game boards, and 4 dice for the 0-20 game boards. Students can use bingo markers or animal crackers to cover the numbers. Finally, there are practice pages for each number 0-20. The pages have the numeral, the spelling of the word and a picture representing that number at the top of the page. Under that I included a rhyme to remind students how to write the number and then there are lines for students to practice writing the number. At the bottom of the practice pages there is an area where students are to draw their own picture representing that number.

Fluency & Comprehension Reading Intervention for All Seasons Kindergarten Level

Fluency & Comprehension Reading Intervention for All Seasons: Kindergarten Level

Flesch Kincaid Readability Grade Level is 0.0 for all passages in this packet.

This bundle contains 35 original fluency passages I wrote and 3 comprehension extension activities to accompany each one. The fluency passages are jam packed with sight words and also contain Kindergarten word families. All the fluency passages rhyme as well. Using one fluency passage per week, this would provide interventions for the whole school year. For each passage there is a color copy that you can print in color and reuse for students to read. There is also a teacher black and white copy that you can print off for each student and record their scores on it. It has sections to record fluency scores, rhyming identification and other notes. 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.

This packet is different from the other fluency packets in several ways:

1) All the passages are on a 0.0 grade level using the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Calculator. They are not in chronological order, as with the other packets. Anything higher didn’t seem appropriate for kindergarten and first grade emergent readers. The passages do increase in the number of words throughout the packet, ranging from 29-77.

2) There are 3 correlating activities for each passage, but they follow a different format than the other packets. There is a low level page of comprehension questions, a sight word find coloring page to practice sight word identification, and a page with a higher-level thinking writing activity for day 3. The low level comprehension questions and the sight word find can be used either on day one or day two, depending on your students’ needs and your preference.

3) I’ve included the fluency file labels and progress monitoring graph for you to use if appropriate for your group of students. There is not a table of creation activity ideas, as the higher-level writing activity page is included for each passage for day 3. ***Please understand that because of the nature of kindergarten and their varying reading levels, you may need to tweak and be flexible with your utilization of these materials. You can email me at ckeimer@hotmail.com if you have questions!

*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 materials in this packet are aligned to several Kindergarten 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.

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.
