I use these cloze paragraphs to help my students read more carefully and use correct vocabulary when reading. They help students think about what they are reading and use higher level thinking skills.
This packet includes a page of 4 paragraphs for each month of the year ~ January-December, though the packet begins with August and goes through July much like a school year. The key for each page is included right after that month's paragraphs. The students choose the correct word out of three choices to make the sentences complete.
I use these as a warm-up with my students once a week to help with critical thinking skills.

I graduated from Longwood College in 1997 and spent the first 14 years of my career as an educator in third and fourth grade classrooms. I loved teaching children, but my passion has always been with teaching reading.
I graduated from the University of Virginia with my Masters in Reading in May 2010 and waited patiently for the moment when I could do what I do most and help struggling readers learn to read! In 2011, that dream came true! Now I spend my days as a reading specialist working with students in Kindergarten through fifth grade as they learn to overcome reading difficulties and work to become stronger readers.
In 2012, I began my blogging journey where I highlight books, ideas, and my days in the classroom. You can visit my blog Reading Toward the Stars to learn more about my life as a reading specialist.
