BEDTIME BEASTIES Some

BEDTIME BEASTIES Some sentences stand alone, and others are presented in sequence making up brief fiction or non-fiction passages. To help the student know where they are within a passage, the bottom of the text display shows a row of “page” icons mirroring the number of blocks of text in that passage. The current block within the passage is highlighted.

BEDTIME BEASTIES How Students Advance in Bedtime Beasties Each level includes 20 sentences. The student must correctly complete 18 out of the 20 sentences in order to advance to the next level. Otherwise, the level will be repeated up to 2 more times to provide the student with a total of 3 attempts. Mastery If after 3 attempts, the student has not met the criteria for passing a level, Bedtime Beasties transitions the student to the next level. At the end of the exercise, those levels which were not passed are repeated, using the same progression and rules of advancement as when they were originally presented. The student will continue to work on these levels until mastery is achieved. Re-entering Bedtime Beasties If a student exits or times out of a level while working on a “stand-alone” sentence, the student returns to the next sentence upon reentering the exercise. If a student exits or times out while working on a sentence within a passage before the passage has been completed, the student returns to the beginning of that passage upon reentering the exercise. 54 | Fast ForWord Reading Level 1
