Christmas Reading on the Move

We all know that it is nearly impossible for 6 and 7 year olds to sit still for too long, but especially during the holiday season.  We can have all the procedures and expectations in place, and then…December hits.  We have to be able to find ways to keep our students engaged, but still learning.  These Reading on the Move passages are a great way to get students up and moving, all while practicing their reading fluency skills.

Christmas Reading on the Move is the perfect way to combine fluency with physical exercise. Children love and need to get up and move. In this Reading on the Move series of products, students will be moving as they read. It is the perfect way to add fun to fluency practice.

This Reading on the Move packet includes 3 differentiated levels of passages.  This makes it work so easily for the different levels of readers in your classroom.

How does this work?

Students read the passage.  Then, they roll the dice and perform the corresponding “Christmas themed” movement.  After completing the movement, they color in a Christmas light.  Then, they reread the passage, roll, and color for a total of 5 readings.  This helps to take away the dread of rereading.  (If you need a Winter Theme instead, check out my Winter Reading on the Move packet.)

What are teachers saying about Reading on the Move?

  1. I’ve used these Moving after Reading passages in my 1st grade class for a number of years, and they are always a huge hit! All students get excited to see what we will roll, they love choosing colors for the holiday lights, and I always let them take the passage home at the end of the day so they can read it to their parents.

    The differentiated levels are so appreciated – they allow me to tailor the same activity for my varying reading groups. I’ve used this resource both whole-class and small-group (independent work).

    Thank you so much for creating this valuable and memorable resource and experience for my students!
