What educators are saying

I actually used these passages for homework. My parents were able to time their child and ask them the corresponding questions relating to the passage. This also gave them practice for DIEBELS.
This is a great resource used in my classroom. Our children do not have gaps in their education now... they have no exposure to the content. So teachers are digging deep for great resources.

*UPDATE* You can now share this with your students digitally!

This resource was created using Google Forms. You must have a Google email for use. Each passage can be assigned in Google Classrooms. It is ideal for distance learning. I also include the print file so you can have a physical copy of the pages when you are back in school with your students.

Each passage contains five components -

  • A teacher passage with numbered columns and a chart to record words correct and errors daily.
  • A student passage that has a larger font for the students to read off of while you record on the teacher's sheet.
  • A reading comprehension sheet that contains three questions in a short answer format. This would be perfect for any reading interventions (RTI) you are conducting in your classroom.
  • Graphs for the students to record their cold and hot read in blue or red so they can keep track of their progress.
  • A weekly parent reading log will help parents practice and record the fluency passage practice at home.
