Need more information? Here is our Extended Description:
Easy Reading Awesome Animals was created to appeal to reluctant and/ or struggling readers. The stories are ideal to use with individual students or with a small group. The reading level of the stories ranges from grade 1.0 to grade 2.5, as determined by the Flesch-Kincaid Readability Scale. The wide array of fascinating animal topics and the accompanying realistic illustrations will captivate and hold the interest of any student reading below grade level, regardless of his or her age.
The stories were written using controlled vocabulary and simple sentence structure. Prominent within the stories is the repetition of words and phrases, most noticeably the repetition of each paragraph’s first sentence at the end of the paragraph. This technique has been found to help struggling readers begin to quickly recognize words and phrases, thereby improving reading fluency.The four questions that follow each story will test reading comprehension by requiring students to find facts and locate answers within the story.
This product is comprised of 40 stories and accompanied by a 48-page unit of coordinating activities. Activity pages in the unit are reproducible and include cloze reading, alphabetizing, and sentence writing. A “Words to Know” list is included for use prior to reading the stories.
Vocabulary Suggestions & Extended Activities:
Use the “Words to Know” list prior to reading to introduce any words the student may not be familiar with.
Discuss the particular animal the student has chosen to read about. Find out what the student may already know about the animal. Has he or she seen one? Where might this animal be seen? Is this animal dangerous? Would this animal make a good pet?
Following completion of a story, assign the coordinating activity page. Have the student read the completed fill-in-the-blank sentences aloud to assure that they make sense.
When the student shows an interest in a particular animal, help him or her find out more about that animal by using another resource.
