At the end of the unit, 90% of students will be
able to ask questions about text and answer
comprehension questions with 80% accuracy.
Chris is hearing impaired and has to receive
support in order to access information.
Chris is a kinesthetic and visual learner. He is hearing impaired
which makes it difficult to hear sound patterns in words (especially rhyming)
and is struggling in reading comprehension.
Chris enjoys reading grade level books and
working in groups with peers during Learning
Centers. Chris also loves working on various
math lessons during our Blended Learning time.
It seems that math is her strong area because
there is a lot of hands-on learning that takes place
with various manipulatives.
Chris is reading sight words fluently and is
reading on Level B which is grade level text. He is
having difficulty answering comprehension questions
from the text read.
Strategy 1: Modify reading assignments for student by
shortening the length of the text. It may be necessary
to break the text into smaller parts so that he can read
and answer questions about only a few pages rather than
the entire story/text.
Strategy 2: Have the student pre-read the text with the Special Educator
to front-load vocabulary and reading strategies necessary for success. By
reading the text ahead of time, Chris will have more opportunities to practice
reading the text and answering questions about the content.

To help Chris answer questions about text,
I will let him choose text to read based on interest
from Reading A-Z using the online tool. After reading
the text, Chris will practice answering questions using
the interactive digital tools to annotate text.
Eva is an advanced student who has
to be challenged in all subject areas.
Eva is a visual and kinesthetic learner who enjoys working with
others. She is also very social and enjoys interacting with others.
Eva is an advanced Kindergarten student who is performing above
grade level in both reading and math. She is able to master grade
level content quickly and must be challenged.
Eva enjoys both reading and math. She also takes pride
in helping her peers. Eva is a leader and a great facilitator.
She also enjoys writing.
Eva is reading 40 or more sight words fluently and is
reading on Level D which is above grade level text. She
can easily answer comprehension questions based on the
text read and is challenged to build upon her knowledge
and write new endings to stories and create her own stories.
Strategy 1: Eva will answer comprehension questions in writing. This will give Eva
opportunities to practice writing down her thoughts and ideas about text on paper
as well as answer comprehension questions in complete sentences.
Strategy 2: Eva will complete an independent reading project
where she will create her own book that includes a set of
comprehension questions for others to answer based on the
information read in the book.
