January has hit. It means a couple of different things to me.
1. It marks the ONE YEAR anniversary of Adventures in Literacy Land. Time has flown by and I have really enjoyed being part of such a strong literacy community. I have learned so much.
2. It is mid-year for my firsties. Things start to really click at this time of year and fluency becomes more of a focus for us.
What better way to celebrate both of these milestones than through a Winter Wonders Blog Hop!
There are so many ways to integrate fluency practice into your daily schedule. Some things that you can do to work on fluency include:
*listening to a fluent reader
But some struggling students need even more. I have found that some students struggle with fluency because they still have not mastered the high frequency words.
I wanted to combine some of these fluency strategies into one lesson (because I know our time is always limited!) And we are going to call it a 2-Way Fluency Scoot.
During this game students will buddy read, listen to others, read phrases, and read high frequency words repeatedly. Students will read "growing sentences" to each other in the form of a SCOOT game!
Students record this type of activity by evaluating the fluency.
freebie! I hope this game can help to work on fluency in your classroom this winter!
