Fluency #1 This is a Fluency Phone! With this handy little device a student can sit and read to him or herself by talking into one end and listening to the other. This is a great tool to have in the classroom so that students can listen to themselves read and practice fluency without interrupting the rest of the class. They are very easy and the students love them!
Fluency #2 Reading buddies are a great way for students to practice their fluency! Not all students are comfortable reading aloud in front of their peers. But with these reading buddies, students can just grab one of these and read to them. They are easy to have and the students really enjoy them!
Literature #1 This is a great way to extend the book Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. After reading the book with your class you can bring in green eggs and ham, or you can make green eggs and ham as a class. This is a great way to make books fun and interactive with your classroom!
Word Recognition #1 This is a great game to learn sight words. Basically you just take cheap ping pong balls and write sight words and then have the students draw a ball and try to tell you what word is on the ball. It is a great way to get the students involved in their learning!
Motivation to Read #1 This is a Book Recommendation Tree; it is a great way for students to recommend books to each other without doing it orally. If students can't find a book to read they can just go to the tree. What a Great Idea!
