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.
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.)
