Hi everybody! Here we are at week 5! You have done it and I couldn't be prouder! We have all learned new ways of doing things over the last several weeks. Congratulations! Give yourselves a pat on the back.
Just as a reminder, I only need your information from the Read Naturally Passages. I want your cold read and the hot read numbers. I would like your total number of words read in one minute along with the total of word errors by the end of each week. You may call the information in to my work phone and leave a message or you are welcome to email me with the scores. My number is 384-2004 ext. 2533 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org If you text me, please include your name, the passage you read and both the hot and cold reads for the week. You can text me at: 904-646-7964. You can read through to the bottom of this page for the directions for the Read Naturally passages. Thank you.
You can do this.
Thank you, it has been my honor and privilege getting to work with each of you.
Week 5 May 4 - 8
This week's Read Naturally Stories and Instruction
Other fun word activities:
Thanks for staying on task!! You make me proud :-)
Here are your Read Naturally Stories:
Please write the date on the top of the page. Have an adult or older sibling read the key words to you. Stop and write what you think the story is about. Turn the title into a question. (for example, Is a Yak bad or is it something else?) Also highlight any words that might give you trouble.
Now it's time to do your first cold read. Time yourself on a 1 minute oral read of the story. Make sure to write the story number on the "cold" score of your graph and color the score in blue. Write your "cold read" score of the total words and the correct words read on the bottom of your story as well. For example: say you read 84 words with 10 errors for a total of 74 correct words. You can write 74/84 on your graph and on the cold read score of your story.
Listen to an adult or older sibling read the story 3 times. Touch the words and follow along to learn the story.
Now work alone:
Practice orally reading the story 5 times.
Time yourself for 1 minute each time.
Answer the questions (if you have any) on the back side.
Prove your answers by highlighting where you found the answers in the story.
Write a retell of the story or what the story was about.
Tell an adult or older sibling that you are ready for your "hot" read.
Read the final 1 minute oral reading, "hot" read, to an adult or older sibling.
Graph the "hot" read score in red and write the number of correct words over the total words read in the box on the graph.
Next week begin with step 1 on the next story. Call or email me if you have any questions. :)
