You can also set up these fluency centers as file folder games. These work great when you have a small classroom or use them with your early finishers. I have used them when I assess my students at report card time. Click HERE to read my tips.
Use the mini book with your Guided Reading group or small group. Then send it home for homework.
My students have always enjoyed playing charades. It is another one of those activities that gets them up and moving. You can also play it at inside recess. There are 12 picture cards included with the ABC order center.
- Put the pictures in a sack. Let a volunteer pick a card and then act it out. The volunteer will call on 2 people to ask the volunteer QUESTIONS. You need to emphasize the QUESTION part. They are not guessing the answer. They will ask a question about what the person is acting out.Students will write down their answer on a piece of paper or white board. This helps with the blurting out problem. They will ask a question about what the person is acting out.
- Example: If the person was acting out reading a book, a student might ask the volunteer “is this something that you can do at school?”
- Draw a name from your popsicle cup or however your choose volunteers to act out the next picture. Once again students will ask 2 questions.
