This a folder designed to use to practice reading and math skills in your teacher directed small groups. The students can then take their folder home daily and practice with an adult. They return the folder to school each day. Differentiation in the group times allow a quick practice with the fluency runs, and then time for other meaningful activities in your classroom. Expectations are set out each week and for those who want some homework time... it's already to go for you. I found that later in the year we could buddy some of the activities, especially for those who did not have anyone to practice with at home. By the 4th nine weeks we could do a lot of the activities whole group and everyone could keep up! They were so ready for first grade! (See my assessment packs that correlate with the activities here in the study folders.) When students know their expectations each week, know what to practice, use the folder in class, practice again at home (if possible)... they grow, grow, grow. I hope you take a look and find my resources helpful to you and your students.
