Directions: Throughout the first half of this unit, you have
been practicing reading aloud excerpts of The Hope Chest
for fluency and accuracy. In this assessment, you are
going to read aloud a new excerpt of the book. (RF.4.4)
To prepare, read the excerpt once silently. Your teacher
will tell you when you should begin reading aloud.
Remember the criteria you recorded on the Fluent
Readers Do These Things anchor chart as you read the
text with accuracy and expression.
Excerpt: Pages 48–49, from “Violet didn’t have to do the
math ...” to the end of the chapter.
