THE COMPLETE PROGRAM IS A GREAT VALUE FOR...
•Teachers who work with students in multiple grade levels for reading
• Interventionists, specialists, coaches, SPED teachers, etc.
• Districts or schools looking to implement the program school-wide
• A group of 3 thrifty teachers working with 5 different sets of students!
This is a good way to share the cost with friends in other grade levels or who are working with other students AND get the best price possible.
If you choose to purchase the entire program with friends or as a district, I do kindly ask that you limit the use of this resource to 3 users (teachers, interventionists, tutors, etc.) per purchase. This intervention program is very special to me and I've spent 15 months of my life writing it. Your support of my work and my time away from family to write this means the world to me - thank you!
For most regular, single-grade classroom teachers ready to implement the reading intervention program, I recommend looking at the the other bundles available for each level range, A-D, E-F, H-K, L-P, Q-T, U-V, and X-Z.
If you need to differentiate with resources from other level ranges, you can purchase individual sets in my store for much less.
OPTION ONE: purchased in a bundle of all the sets per level. This is a great option for a single classroom teacher. Those bundles include 5 sets each, totaling $95 and discounted to $75 (like getting one set free)
OPTION TWO: purchased as set one, two, three, four, or five of all the levels A-Z. This is a great option for teachers working with a variety of reading levels. Those bundles include 7 sets each, totaling $132 and discounted to $115 (like getting one set free).
Are each of the passages leveled separately?
A: Each passage is not leveled separately. I believe students can read on more than just one reading level. I think we limit our kids when we place them on only one level. That is why each set is a ‘range’ of 3-4 levels. If your students struggle reading the passage independently, it’s a perfect opportunity for reading instruction and modeling of reading to occur!
Is this program research-based?
A: Yes! I have a pilot team that has been in place for two years. They are using the program in a variety of ways and reporting data to me. I will have the research results from the 2015-2016 school year available soon. Also, the program was designed after careful research in the best practices in reading instruction. Multiple professional development resources created from decades of research were studied and used as theoretical foundations to the program. The comprehension, word work, and vocabulary are all designed to specifically match the learning needs of readers at each level range.
Can parents do this at home?
A: Absolutely! The program is designed with careful instructions so that parents, aids, and school volunteers can easily administer and assess students’ reading skills. It is very easy to follow! Even students can work independently or with partners after they complete a few passages.
What reading program did you use to level the ranges?
A: I used Fountas and Pinnell for my reading levels. If you use a different program you can match it up with the conversion chart found here.
Are there answer keys provided?
A: Yes! There are answer keys for each of the comprehension questions in every passage.
How many of the passages are fiction and nonfiction?
A: In almost all the sets it is a 50/50 split, with 10 passages being fiction and 10 being nonfiction. There are fantasy, realistic fiction, biographies, informational, and content specific passages to name a few. The passage topics were carefully matched to common interests and understandings of students at each level.
About how long are the passages?
A: The passage lengths vary by their range. Here is a breakdown of passage lengths by levels:
Levels A-D >> 50-65 words
Levels E-G >> 95-125 words
Levels H-K >> 140-170 words
Levels L-P >> 200-240 words
Levels Q-T >> 255-320 words
Levels U-W >> 255-320 words
Levels X-Z >> 255-320 words
What is the difference between the first and fifth set in every level range?
A: As far as the levels and passage difficulty, there is no difference from set one to set five. The sets do NOT get increasingly more difficult from set one to set five. The difference in each set is 20 new reading passages, along with different comprehension, word work and vocabulary skills to practice.
Do you use a new passage every day?
A: You can! But, you do not have to. The program is designed to be used in many ways (see ‘Ways to Use the Program’). Some teachers chose to focus on one passage for an entire week, while others move into a new passage each day. It truly depends on your schedule, and the learning needs of your students!
Do the students complete the passages independently?
A: They can, but if they need help, you can certainly do so. It is totally open to your students’ needs how you would like them to complete the work each day! Every classroom will be slightly different based on what works best for them!
How did you determine that the passages fit within each level range?
A: I used a combination of four things to determine that each passage was appropriate for the range it is in. First, I researched the Continuum of Literacy Learning by Fountas and Pinnell. I studied what readers can and cannot do at each of the guided reading levels in the Continuum. Second, I compared the passages to other texts at those levels to be sure the text difficulty, content, and sentence structures were appropriate. Third, I used the Fry Readability Scale to calculate each passage’s grade level. And finally, I used my training, experience, and understanding in theory as a Literacy Collaborative Coordinator to verify that the passages were appropriate for each level range.
How can I gauge progress monitoring if the passages don't have one reading level?
A: This is a really great question. As I’ve said before, I believe kids are more than capable to perform on a range of levels, not just one. I use the progress monitoring data not so much to put them on one level as I do to see reading growth. I look at how they are growing in their comprehension, word work, vocabulary, and fluency skills. When I see growth in these key reading areas, I know they are becoming stronger readers, regardless of the text level. I know many teachers who use the program and progress monitor these skills. Then, they take a quarterly benchmark assessment with a leveled standardized program and see huge growth!
