Here we are at the last week of instruction! Can you believe it? Here it is, your late week of lessons/review for our final week!
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 number of erros with words 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 phone number is 384-2004 ext 2533 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or you are welcome to text me your Read Naturally information. Please include your name, the passage you read and your cold and hot read numbers. Please look at the bottom of this page for the directions on Read Naturally. Thank you!
Thanks for keeping up with your studies, I'm proud of each and everyone of you! You have made it this far, there is no end to what you can do!
Honestly, it has been my privilege and honor to work with each of you. I miss you.

Attached are the Read Naturally Passages:
Week 1 - April 6 - 10
Please start by writing 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, What is running on water? 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" read 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 bottomof your story as well. For example: say you read a total of 84 words in one minute with 10 wrrors for a total of 74 correct words. You can write 74/84 as the score.
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 on the back side.
Prove your answers by highlighting where you found the answers in the story.
Write a retell of the story.
Tell an adult or older sibling that you are ready for your "hot" read.
Read the final 1 minute oral reading, "hot" read, to a parent or older sibling.
Graph the "hot read score in red being sure to write the number of correct words over the total read in the box on the graph and on the bottom of the story.
Next week begin with step 1 on the next story. Call or email me if you have any questions. :)
