This is a fluency game called Minute to Swim It. . They are designed similarly to the First Grade ELA Wonders Spelling Words for Units 1-3 only. They are separated by Weeks 1 and 2 and also by Weeks 3 and 4. I didn’t completely include Week 5, but there are several week 5 words on some of the lists. The second page of each week is always nonsense words.
Instructions for game:
Give each student reading aloud the fluency page. Set the timer for one minute.
As they read, another student or you can circle with the whiteboard any words they
DON’T know. The student can then put the number of fish matching the numbers of
Words they read inside the shark. Next, have 1 to 3 more students read and put their
Fish inside their shark. The student with the most fish inside the shark wins.
