Arctic Animals

Good Character

The entire packet includes 20 fluency passages written by me.  There are a variety of fiction, nonfiction, poems, and songs throughout the entire month.  Along with each passage, there are Power Words (vocabulary), comprehension questions, phonics work, and a home connection component.  I have also included an additional language arts page to go along with each passage.

You can purchase the entire packet by clicking below.

I also sell each week seperately if there is a particular week that you're interested in.


  1. Jodi, you have an extra 'the' in the penguin poem, last sentence. Many thanks for sharing your work :)

  2. I really like these packets I am headed to TpT right now. Thank you,

  3. Love these!! Can I ask how you introduce them and utilize them in the class. Are they small or whole group, certain components taught each day, etc..?

  4. Jan, thank you! Thank you! I have fixed it on TpT, Teacher's Notebook, and with the free sample through Google Docs.

    I do these as a whole group. We read it together numerous times, then some days I have them break into small groups or partners to read them some more. We do the rest of the page together and discuss and then I usually have them do the additional language page on their own and then we go over it. I have heard from numerous teachers though that have a lot of success using them in small groups or only for a certain group of kids. Hope that helps.

  5. Hi Jodi -

    I REALLY like the character worksheet . . . is this something that you use as a follow-up to every book they read? Such a great focus for our little leaders.

    When I did my top three, your linky party came up because it generated my #3 post, so I gave you a shout out today with a link back here.

    Happy new year,


  6. Thank you for your samples! I really like these - and I'm trying to figure out a good way to work them into my class! But using your freebies give me some resources to try out - but your packets are in my wishlist for when I figure out my system! I don't know if using them for HW works well with my kids...Title I school without a lot of home support...so I'm trying to figure out how to use them in class.
    Thank you!

  7. Jen,
    I completely agree with you about not using them strictly for homework. I'm at a Title One school as well and I don't have much success with homework. I started using these last year when we had a grant that gave us "extended day." Our entire school went a half hour longer than the other elementary school's in our corporation. After the grant money was gone and our extended day ending this October, I decided that I still really wanted to use these. Now I do them as soon as we come in from recess. It kind of calms them down and gets them back on focus.

  8. These are great Jodi! My students are doing really well with them. I added all your packets to my wishlist :)

    I noticed on the good character sheet on the back there is the word made instead of mad.

    Thanks again for sharing!
