April Poems, Fluency, and Easter

I just uploaded my April Poems and Songs to Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook.
There is something new that I have added to this packet.  I have put in strips for each poem. 
At the Special Education conference I attended, we learned about a fluency strategy that I loved.  She told us to cut apart poems, put them in a folder or baggie, and pass them out to partners.  The partners had to read the strips and work on putting the poem in order.  This increases fluency because the students have to keep rereading it over and over again in order to put it in the correct order.  Genius!!  And, so easy!

You can check out the April Poems and Songs by clicking below.

I also wanted to remind you of my April Fluency packet that's available as well.

You can also find a weeklong Easter Fluency Packet {not included in the April Packet}.

You can find some FREE Easter writing paper that I had posted last year by clicking here and another Guess What's in My Egg Easter activity by clicking here.

    I stopped by to give you 2 awards! I know that you already have earned at least one of them but I just couldn't help myself!



  5. I love the cut up idea. I have been doing it for a while with my reading students. I used cut sentences with sight words a lot! It's a great thing for those students who are stuggling readers.

  6. Love this! Thanks for the links to your freebies, too!!
