Once Upon A Time… Time Telling Activities from Hour to Minute {Bundle for Grades 1-3}

I bundled my telling time units for those of us who teach multiple grade levels and provide divine intervention.  🙂  This “Once Upon A Time” bundle has a fairy tale theme with castles, magic wands and frogs. It is aligned with the first, second and third grade common core standards for telling time.  Click on the pic for the link to the bundled item in my TpT store.

You can also distribute the clock templates to each student for them to assemble and use on their own. Additionally, there is a “Once Upon A Time” Bingo template.

I use these materials for special education and RTI intervention, but they can also be used to supplement math curriculum in the general education classroom.

I hope you love it! If you do, please rate me and follow me. I really appreciate your feedback and follows! 🙂

Thank you so much!

“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

What do workers gain from their toil?  I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race.  He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

(Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11)

Fluency & Comprehension Reading Intervention Mega Bundle for Grades 1-5

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

original-1274216-1

medium-1274216-2 medium-1274216-3 medium-1274216-4

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, 3.1-3.9 for the third grade packet, 4.1-4.9 for the fourth grade packet, and 5.1-5.9 for the fifth grade packet. They are all in chronological order.

Each of the 5 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 5 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, Third, Fourth and Fifth 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 5 grade level packets for over 25% off the discounted price and 45% off the original price.

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

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

“You’re spinning out of control again.

Your life feels like a sinking ship.

You’re wondering how it came to this.

Is it too late?  Is it too far?

For Him to reach you

And come to where you are.

Step out on the edge.  Don’t be afraid of it.

And when you feel the rain

Call His name

He’ll find you in the hurricane.”
