The idea for One Breath Boxes comes from Mr. Smith over at TeacherTipster.com. He is amazing so go check him out! I needed something for my first graders last year to practice fluency of high frequency words in Spanish so I made my own version.
This download includes the first 25 most frequently found words in Spanish texts. Level 1 and Level 2 are both the same 25 words, just mixed up. This helps your students practice for mastery, not memorization.
Here's how it works: Your students should take a deep breath and read out loud the words in the first box. If they get them all correct, they can move on to the next box. Once they have completed the whole page and can read well for fluency. They can move on to the next level!
It is great to use in a small group setting, Daily 5 independent work time, or as a whole class on the Smartboard when you have 5 minutes to spare. You can also make copies and send it home in take home folders for additional practice.
