Freebie and Give Aways

Happy Saturday Everyone! We made our weekend trip to "Monkey Bizness" today. Never heard of it? It is an awesome indoor gym for kids 7 and under. Parents are encouraged to play right along side of their children, which I LOVE- and they have a great coffee shop as well.

This week has been another crazy one!  I held Data Chats with the teachers in Grades 3-5. Here in FL we are required to take the FAIR- Florida Assessment for Instruction in Reading- assessment three times per year. It helps us to know how are children are doing in reading comprehension, fluency and word analysis compared to a norming group across the state. From these chats, we developed a plan for intervention groups. We have one group of kiddos at each grade level whose fluency and word analysis scores are not that low, but reading comprehension needs a boost.

We decided on using Reciprocal Teaching as our strategy for working with our students who need comprehension guidance. I created this graphic organizer for our children to use as they read. Grab your FREE copy here!




What are some interventions that you implement for students struggling with comprehension, fluency or word analysis?
Finally, I am helping my bloggy friend, Amy at What Happens in First Grade celebrate reaching 100 Followers. She has an AWESOME giveaway with products from 20 teacher bloggers. Be sure to check it out and let her know I sent you!
