Here is a fun, interactive, paperless, self-grading reading activity for your students!
After taking hundreds of running records and reading assessments since 2002, there are words I've found that students most commonly get confused and incorrect. Use this activity to help students hear and see the subtle differences between words. There are 72 total word cards but only 20 will flow each time students practice. NOTE: Students will need sound to hear the words to participate. Headphones would be useful.
Are there any other words your students frequently switch? Let me know, and I can add them to the practice deck.
