This FREE resource will walk you through how to do shared reading with your upper grades (3rd-6th) students for 10-15 minutes daily to build fluency and comprehension skills. All you have to do is find the weekly articles. Included in the resource is a 5-day instructional plan for both nonfiction and fiction articles.
Learning's a Hoot: Number of the Day This might be ok to use a little later on during the year, or for a Number of the Week assignment. There's a blank template at the end so you can use numbers more appropriate for your grade level (although you might have to re-do some of the wording on the activities).
