A full year of weekly activities that challenge children to develop fluency with words. Students read as many words as they can in one minute, trying to beat their own best record. Each week the word list targets a specific spelling pattern. The targets build in complexity as the year goes on and meet Common Core standards for reading foundational skills.
My kids love trying again and again to get faster and faster. It is such a thrill when they can “Read-it In a Minute!” As they study the spelling pattern and learn to see how it works within words, they begin to recognize the words more quickly. With repeated readings, their fluency begins to increase and so does their confidence!
The word lists each come with a note to parents. This gives you the choice to send it home as homework if you want to. It can also be used in class with individuals, small groups, or even the whole class.
Kids love it and you will too!
