4 LISTENING COMPREHENSION PASSAGE The Cockroach Procedure: Read the entire passage to the student. Ask the questions. Check those questions that are answered correctly. Directions: Listen as I read this passage to you. When I am finished, I will ask you some questions. The Cockroach It makes you squirm. It makes you shudder. It has enjoyed life for thousands and thousands of years. There are more than a thousand kinds of it found all over the world. It is closely related to the cricket and the grasshopper but is not as pleasing. It is, in fact, the most disgusting of all insects. What is it? It is the annoying cockroach. The cockroach has an oval-shaped body that is covered with a shiny, tough casing. It has two long feelers. It has long legs that are covered with bristles. These legs are strong and help the cockroach to run fast. It is one of the fastest running insects. Some cockroaches have wings and can fly. A cockroach will eat anything food, grease, trash, books, chairs, other insects. It can be found anywhere homes, stores, bakeries. A cockroach is dirty and tarnishes anything it touches. The best way to keep a cockroach out of your house is to keep your house clean and dry. A cockroach likes a house that is dirty, greasy, and damp. Seal cracks to prevent the cockroach from entering the house. Dust cracks with roach powder. The roach powder has poison in it. The poison gets on the cockroach s legs, feelers, and casing. The cockroach eats the poison as it grooms itself and soon it expires. Questions: Put a check next to questions answered correctly. 1. How many kinds of cockroaches are there?

7 PASSAGE FOR DECODING AND FLUENCY Poison Ivy Last March Darrell went camping with the Boy Scouts. It was a three-day camping trip. The scouts hiked deep into the woods. Everything they needed food, plates, forks, spoons, sleeping bags, tents, and clothes was in their backpacks. Before the trip, Darrell did not worry about the animals in the woods. He did not worry about the darkness at night in the woods. What he did worry about was the poison ivy. Oh, how it made him itch! One time Darrell had had poison ivy over every inch of his body. He had oozed, itched, and scratched for three weeks. It* was not a cheerful time. Darrell did not remember what poison ivy looked like. It was green and had three leaves. But a lot of plants were green with three leaves. He looked at books about poison ivy to try and remember what it looked like. Before he left on the trip, he really did think he remembered what it looked like. He was ready to stay out of the way of the poison ivy. 6

8 READING COMPREHENSION AND METACOGNITIVE STRATEGIES PASSAGE Insights into the Red Fox A fox is a wild animal that belongs to the dog family. It is related to the dog and the wolf. The fox looks like a wolf, but it is smaller and has a longer, fluffier tail and longer hair. Its muzzle is more pointed. The red fox gets its name from its reddish color. It is found in the United States. The red fox is helpful to humans by eating rodents such as mice that eat crops. It also eats chickens and ducks that are not penned. In this way, the red fox is not helpful to humans. Red fox pups are born in the spring. The mother and father fox watch over the pups for about three months. After that the red fox pups survive by themselves without mother and father. Are red foxes sly? If you catch a red fox, it will pretend to be dead. Then, when the coast is clear, it will run for freedom. That sounds sly to me! Questions: 1. To what family does a fox belong? 2. How is a fox different from a wolf? 3. How did the red fox gets its name? 4. How is the red fox helpful to humans? 5. How is the red fox not helpful to humans? 6. When are red fox pups born? 7. How long do the pups live with their mother and father? 8. Why are red foxes sly? 7
