Fluency + Comprehension of Text Using Passages {FREEBIE included!}

Years ago we would've never used passages during guided reading groups - the thought didn't cross our mind.  Jump ahead a few years and CASE Testing and mClass (specifically, DORF) became a reality in our first grade classrooms.  We have learned that students need time and practice using text in passage form; specifically passages with very few pictures and multiple paragraphs.  We try to provide an equal balance of both in our classrooms and we feel this has helped our readers be successful in multiple reading scenarios.
