Kindergarten, 1st grade


Are you looking for monthly Reading Comprehension Activities for your Kindergarten students? Look no further, and these monthly passages are perfect for beginning readers.

This freebies set comes in three formats. 2 pages of Reading Fluency, 2 pages of Reading fluency check cut and paste, and 2 pages of Reading Comprehension will suit the needs of your students. I have provided a copy of all those pages without the “dots” for tracking. These activities work well for a small group practice, fluency practice, class discussions, homework, and for assessment use.

Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle



Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle



Product Description

The Fishbowl activity is mostly useful during literature circles or in a novel study. Quite literally, the group in the center is being watched by the rest of the class, while they are discussing elements of fiction. This activity is a very important tool in order to teach students how group discussions should run, what is to be said, and how it is to be said. Many times the leader of the discussion doesn’t know how to prompt members to elaborate upon their contributions. This will certainly help.

In addition, it is often difficult for a teacher to evaluate these discussions, which is the reason I have created this package. It is easy to use and you can merely check boxes to quickly assess each member of the groups.

This package contains:
• An explanation of The Fishbowl Activity
• How to run a Fishbowl Activity (within the realm of a literature circle)
• Why such an activity is important
• Evaluation sheets one can use to easily evaluate the discussions and roles of students

It’s teaching made easy!
