I was able to conduct this study during reading group time. I understand about losing assistance in your classroom. They loved the racetrack activity. You might try it with your third graders and see what happens. My students are now working in pairs with the racetracks. I have observed them assisting each other when they are struggling with words on the track. They are making their own flashcards and are helping each other. This is something they do when I am working with another group. I have had to make many changes to adjust for the lack of assistance in the classroom this year. This one has been successful!

              Sent it. Let me know if you don't get it or if there is anything else I can help with. I also included a modified version of the reading fluency checklist students used. Modification was simply... more

        That is good to hear that you did it in your reading group. Currently I am using fluency sight word pyramids to help build my students' sight word vocabulary in context. My students really love them... more

            I will email them to you. I really love them so far and I can see a big improvement of my students fluency with sight words and just in general.
