Here are a few simple tricks/tools from last week to try in your next reading group (or at home!)
Use Boogies boards for word work in small group instruction. You can get these on Amazon and they're very affordable. We got ours through our AEF Grant.
Sorts are always a great way to practice sound spelling patterns for reading and writing. Have students work on them together in a pair.
Practice NWF as a quick warm up when kids start reading group with colorful flash cards. Not the most exciting, but they love picking their color :)
The ole' shaving cream trick for word work practice. Always tride and true and the students LOVE it.
Roll and record work work games are a great way for kids hands to be moving, playing and still reading and practicing word patterns. Two second graders are refreshing their CVC words and working on reading the correct vowel sounds.
