You will find easy and fun reading homework activities that kids will enjoy! Essentially for first grade, these homework activities can also be used for kindergarten and second grade, depending on their reading levels.
I have aligned each tictactoe board with activities that I have found kids needed help on in order to move on to the next DRA reading level. Kids in my class were allowed to browse books on their DRA reading levels and bring about 4-5 books home a week in a baggie. I have found that aligning fun activities makes them want to do homework and read more. So there are differentiated reading activities to their level as well as needs and skills. I also added on visual aids in my boards to help those in need.
There are 3 tic-tac-toe boards for reading levels R thru 3, I focused on sight words and decoding. Since books are limited I added on a few additional worksheets and activities for the kids.
There are 3 tic-tac-toe boards for reading levels 4 thru 6, that focus more on comprehension, retelling and long vowel sounds.
There are 2 tic-tac-toe boards for reading levels 8 thru 12, that focus on connection and details.
There is 1 tic-tac-toe board for reading levels 14 and up that focus more on other strategies that help them focus on skills needed to increase reading ability and fluency. (But you can use the boards level 6 thru 12 for this group as well.)
The tictactoe boards can be used for at least 3 times a week, so no need to re-create different activities. 1 tic-tac-toe board can last you 1 month and for most levels there are 3 boards; so that's 3 months of HW the kids can rotate on. You can use the same board as many times as needed. As in my class, we changed the books each week, so even though the activities are the same their responses are different because they will have different books to use.
I hope you find these differentiated fun activities as successful in reading results as I did!
