As we hear some our kids read... it feels pretty monotone. Here is a great coaching video to show you ways that you can support your kiddos with bringing the story alive!
We are increasing our exposure to High Frequency Words for our RWM kids this year.
1st grade has 7 lists that we expect them to know by the end of the year. After you have heard them read a Set list 2-3 separate days with 100% accuracy, they can color their rainbow and move to the next list. It will take a few weeks to work through each list!
It's okay... we have all year!
2nd grade has weekly words they are expected to read and spell. During your time with your student, please just check each word for reading. We don't have time to do the spelling but the teachers appreciate the reading of the words!
3rd and 4th grade, please read through the list when you have time. Highlight the words they know. Then you can keep going back to the list to review the words they don't know.
A few weeks ago, I posted a sheet on ways to support kid with fluency. Here is another video to show you how to use the fluency cards if they are in your students box or folder. Below my video is some more information on the importance of teaching fluency.
As I have been pulling together material for the 1st and 2nd graders... I am finding I need to change the format we were using just a bit. If you have a 1st grader, please watch this video. If you don't... no need to watch. I will touch on 2nd grade next week! Under the video is a sample volunteer form for the week. ( You gotta love the freeze picture... oh my!)
