Fluency Activities and a Leprechaun Visit




Monday, two naughty leprechauns visited our classroom!

Note is VERY hard to read in the picture.
In the corner, you will see Luke the Leprechaun. He was our 'Elf on the Shelf' leprechaun throughout the week. Our entire school did this and it was so fun! I hid him in a new spot each day.
Well, Luke decided to write my class a note. It reads: 

"Dear Ms. Tobin's class,
I saw two naughty leprechauns ruin our class. I tried to stop them, but they jumped out the windows! 
Love, Luke
p.s.- I did see them leave you guys some treats on your teacher's desk."


I wrote it with my left hand so the kids wouldn't immediately recognize my writing!

And of course, they got to write about their experience with the leprechauns.

This ficitonal writing page comes from my March On-the-Go. The students had to write a fictional story about their naughty leprechaun. Grab that here!

I am so excited about my NEW Fluency Centers pack. 
I tested one of the games out on my Core Extension kiddos. I gave them a timer and allowed them to test themselves on their sight word fluency

I am so excited about Spring! I'm about to print and laminate all my Spring stuff for next week. Check out the Spring Reader's Theater activities that I have ready for the kids to practice even more fluency.


We started doing Reader's Theater last week, actually!

Students were practicing for quite a bit before we began.
They had to recite their lines several times before performing. 

Here they are presenting to their friends.
