♥♥♥ HOW I USE IN MY CLASSROOM
I provide each student an individual copy of one of the copies of the books (some students may receive in color or full size to increase their engagement). Students use this book as a repeated reading during guided reading. We do the following things with it:
Repeated readings during small group:
We chorally read aloud the book together the first time. Then, students color in the first star on their fluency checks (see preview).Students whisper read to themselves for two to three more instances. Upon filling up all of their stars, we rejoin as a group and complete the comprehension questions together. The teacher reads these aloud to the group. This is done only after all students color in all three stars on their personal fluency checks (on the assessment pages, as monitored by the teacher).
Students partner read to each other during a station and initial into each others stars (on the assessment page) as a reading is finished. Once all three stars are filled, a teacher, IA, or higher reading student reads aloud the assessment to the student.
