Students, teachers, and parents will enjoy this targeted sight word fluency unit. Teachers and students will appreciate the data monitoring sheets, the enthusiasm of their students, differentiated lessons (game cards), and the improved self-reflection of their students using basketball themed RTI data monitoring sheets.
Parents will appreciate the time that their child's teacher is taking to target his/her instruction.
This unit is perfectly timed for March Madness and basketball lovers- both boys and girls! Students with difficulty in reading at any grade level will benefit from the reading fluency practice that this unit provides.
I recommend starting at a level that is "easy" for your students so that they see immediate results and feel successful. Once your students have fluently read 100% of the words on their list - challenge him/her by setting a timer and having them beat the clock 2 - 3 times.
Students are ready to move to the next Dolch unit when they can fluently read all of the words on their list in under 1- 2 minutes.
