During the first 5 minutes of my small group time, I listen in for fluency and take a running record on a student. At the beginning of the year my running records look a bit like this. This is form is from Deanna’s Guiding Reading unit.
But as the complexity of the text increases, I move over to this form. I am not sure where I got the original for this format, but if you know, please share it with me! I have had it for about 12 years I think. I retyped it because it had gotten so messy.

Fluency practice is recognized with this bookmark.

Then it is time for word work! You can honestly take a station activity to use as your word work, but I have also created some activities that are specifically designed for your small group table.
The spinner can be found HERE.
AND for your students who are working on stretching out longer words, we use the same cards.
