This will be a short but sweet post because I have to go brush up on my Hunger Games knowledge. I am in a teachers v. students Hunger Games Jeopardy Game tomorrow!!
Fluency is something we are really working on right now in Second Grade. We have a few minutes each day that we work on increasing our fluency. To make fluency practice fun when we work on it whole group or when students are in a workstation I use these:
They are straws from Walmart. You can also get them at Target (sometimes). I have bats and pumpkin straws that we use during October and peppermint candy shaped straws that we use in December and now bunnies and eggs for March and April. The students use the straw as a "word tracker". They only cost around $1. This plastic straw really motivates my chickadees to read!!

To close, I will leave you with these signs of spring that came to visit me in my backyard!
