Fluency Intervention Tubs

I've mentioned a few times on the ole blog that my kiddos really needed some fluency help this year.  We've come a long way but we still have a long way to go.  

Every day, we have a ten to fifteen minute intervention block.  Some students leave to go to other rooms for intensive interventions but most of my pumpkins stay with me.  

We've tried centers, which they LOVED, however they didn't quite fit in the time frame that we had to follow, since some of my kids leave for Title and enrichment immediately after intervention and then other kids from another room come to my classroom for self selected reading. 

We have been doing fluency tubs for a few weeks and we LOVE it. :)

What's inside these tubs? Let's check them out! 

Tub One has Roll, Read, Repeat from Christina Bainbridge's Fourth Hundred Fry Phrase Fluency Intervention Pack.   My kids love this game!

Tub Two has a Partner Fluency Poem and Point of View Cards.   I got the partner poems from {this} Scholastic book.

I have the students read through it twice normally with their partner, then if they wish, they can pull a Point of View Card to use when reading the poem.  They LOVE changing their voices. :) Many thanks to my sweet friend Amanda for her creativity!

Tub Three is one of my monthly fry phrase games.  They LOVE playing these games and remind me oh so gently that we need a new one when a new month rolls around. :)

I got the container for this month's at Target. In the Dollar Spot! :)  It is the perfect size and price.
 Check out "Bee" Mine on TpT {here}.

On a side note, I bought a new printer this weekend.  If you print a lot of stuff at home, I can't recommend this printer enough.  The ink lasts a long time, it prints super fast, and the pages come out DRY! :) 

Tub Four has some fry phrases, using the fourth one hundred words but I plan on using the fifth one hundred soon, fun pointers, and point of view cards.  

Finally, one group always meets with me.  In addition to improving our fluency scores, we also need to work on our DAZE scores as well.  The group that works with me using does some type of context clue work.  We've mainly done activities from this book.

Sometimes, we'll use resources off the Dibels website as well to become more familiar with the format of the actual test they take

What I love about these rotations is how easy they are to manage, I'm only changing out games and activities every few weeks. Plus they are engaging and give my kiddos some much need practice in fluency and instruction with fluency and vocabulary! Win, win! 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing how fluency intervention works in my room! :) This ten minute time is so powerful and has become one of our favorite times of the day! :) 

Off to grade some formative assessments to plan my math groups tomorrow, have a great evening!
