Fluency Intervention Tub Update

Hi friends! I hope everyone is having a great day! I'm loving the warmer temperatures and am so excited to take my sweet babies on a walk later. :)

Before I start tackling my Saturday to do list, I wanted to share how fluency tubs are working in my classroom this year.  I originally blogged about them {here}

Fluency tubs is a time of the day that my kiddos really enjoy.  It's full of games and fun stuff like reading in fun point of view voices and I LOVE being able to let them play games in language arts. Playing games is something I really miss about teaching math.  My OTES, our evaluation system in Ohio, goal was to have each of my kiddos grow about 30 words in the oral reading fluency by the end of the year, a gain of a little under a word a week. I am proud to say that 98% of my kids are well on their way to surpassing that this year.   Which I fully attribute that to fluency tubs and lots of independent reading during Read to Self. 

My fluency tubs consist of five tubs/rotations.  My students rotate through each rotation/tub with their tables.  My students visit one rotation/tub a day and each rotation/tub lasts about ten minutes. 

One rotation is working with me.  We work mainly on context clues during this time.  We mainly use these cloze passage to practice or various materials I purchase on TpT.  :) A few times a month, I also do ORF checks/data points with my kiddos.  

You can check out this resource {here}.

Another rotation is fry phrase fluency games.  I several sets in my store {here} and even though my kids are bigger, they LOVE getting a new game every month. 

I alway try to keep my eyes peeled for a fun bag/container at Target/Party City each month.  It just adds a little bit of extra fun. :)

This month, we are using my Pot of Gold Fluency Game

Another rotation is some type of poetry reading.  Last year I used these poems.  This year, my kiddos weren't exactly loving them.  So now I just search online for free seasonal poems, or use ones I've collected throughout the years.  For some reason, they like these a lot better. I still do add some of the partner poems for building fluency, just not every week.

Since the element of choice is very motivating for my kiddos, I love including several poems on a page and allowing them to pick.  My students take turns reading the poems with their shoulder partner and using the awesome Point of View Cards from my sweet friend Amanda

Another rotation is repeated readings of decodable passages using our weekly spelling patterns.  This is a new addition this year and something I just recently discovered came with our reading program.  This isn't their favorite but it's AWESOME fluency practice.  

The last rotation is another type of game.  Right now, it's Fry Phrase Tic Tac Toe

This activity is from one of my newest resources. 

Tic Tac Toe has been a recent addition to our rotations, and we have been loving it. :)  I have a fourth grade edition, fourth one hundred phrases, and a third grade edition, third one hundred phrases.  First and second grade fry phrase tic tac toe boards are coming soon! 

I keep all my fluency tubs on a book shelf that stores all my word work centers.  We keep the lids off this year, for easy recognition.  

I hope you've enjoyed learning about how our fluency tubs are working this year.  This ten minute time in my room is fun, purposeful, and makes such a difference. :) 

Have a great weekend!
