This week I wanted to share with you guys things I have been working on with my kiddos during RTI. Drum roll please..... FLUENCY!
Oh, so it's not just me!
You didn't do it very often with your kiddos either...
Well, I have decided to make it an important part of my lesson each day during RTI.
First, I wanted to establish the why behind fluency.. So, I found this FREE poster from MsJordanReads tpt shop! This was the perfect way to explain why fluency is so important.
She has a wonderful blog post about teaching fluency. I found oodles of resources in that post that are free and super helpful!
Next, I found a few different word lists. To start out each session we take turns reading a list of words. Some of them are real words and some of the lists are nonsense words.
I found this word generator to make me a new list each day! I just took a snapshot of each list and added it to my ppt.
We also practiced phrases!
Finally, I explained what it meant to be a "cold read". I gave them each a passage. They were able to read it 3 times through. By the 3rd time, I told them their tongue should be on fire because it was a hot read!!! Of course, they thought I was silly... But, I explained by the 3rd time, they should have some comprehension of the text they just read. I found a ton of free passages from the links below:
And, of course you want to have data to show their progress.. Well, I was introduced to the website easycbm.com
It is amazing and FREE!!!
You can pick a certain area to test your kiddo in. Enter their score and it will have a beautiful little chart to display for ya! So, in love!!
I also purchased this wonderful product during the FB sale!!!
I hope you have found this post useful. If ya did, leave me some comment love.
Have a great rest of the week!!!
