I started the students on an individualized reading/spelling program and boy are they loving it! Each student reads to me from a list of first grade words, when they make 5 mistakes they go on their word ring. The first grade list is followed by a second and third grade list and when that is mastered their challenge changes to spelling words from a list of leveled words created from the most frequently used words used in writing. As they gather 3 tallies on the back of each word for a successful read/spelling they pull the word off the ring and it goes in the class "I Can" can. When that gets filled it's party time in 1A!
I'll keep you posted!
