I begin each of my small group reading lessons by meeting with one student for a running record and a quick conference. While I'm meeting with this student individually, the other four students are doing their "warm-up" reading.
Students use their baggie book and meet with their partner for their warm-up reading. Partner A reads his baggie book aloud. Partner B times the reading for one minute and counts the number of words read. Student A completes the graph and self-evaluation. Then they switch roles and repeat the activity.
Fluency Clipboards (My Monday Made It Project)
This week I decided I wanted to make clipboards for my students to use when they are practicing with their partner.
I started with a plain clipboard, scrapbook paper, stickers, ribbon, and Mod Podge.
I covered the both sides with paper, stickers, and Mod Podge. Once it dried I tied red ribbon to the metal clips. Ta-dah!

I'm so pleased with the final product! They will go perfectly with my "Camp Read S'more" theme. :)
