This is ideal for a small group working on long a patterns. The three columns contain the same words but in a different order. The group reads the first column together. Then one student at a time reads another column aloud while the other students are checking for accuracy. The listeners tell the reader about any errors when he/she is finished with the column of words. The reader must reread the column until it is read with 100% accuracy. This is repeated daily until students can pass three days in a row with 100% accuracy on the first try.
