Nonsense Word Fluency R.T.I. BLACKout BINGO Game by Ms. Lendahand (WINTER Theme)
Inspiration for creating these games comes from what we are studying or reading about in class. Oftentimes games coordinate with the season we are in and the holidays and customs we are studying!
I love creating these resources because it keeps my firsties happily practicing NONSENSE WORD FLUENCY and I have seen a direct correlation in improved in reading with automaticity along with an improvement in NWF Scores on DIBELS NEXT Screeners.
Nonsense Word Fluency is no nonsense! Gear up for DIBELS Next using resources that are effective, but fun and inexpensive. The best part of all is that the prep time is minimal for you and the reinforcement of nonsense word fluency is right on target. If you are not sure about BLACKOUT BINGO, try one of my freebies before you buy.
This is up to a six player NONSENSE WORD FLUENCY GAME.
(No pseudo haters here please! LOL! Really if you don't like using nonsense words to teach sound-symbol automaticity this is NOT the place to be!)
6 BLACKout BINGO Cards
24 Nonsense Word Fluency Calling Cards
Coordinating Bingo Chips
This game is all about nonsense word fluency practice=) This little resource stands to become a game-changer in your classroom.
If you have not yet tried BLACKOUT BINGO,
please do yourself a favor and just do it!
Your Little Bears will forevermore love you for it.
I pinky promise!
If you squeeze it into your schedule and get it up
and going, let me know how BINGO works for you
in your classroom.
(Played like traditional BINGO...just play until the entire card is filled for each player.)

► Printable items for Teacher Input and Student Output
► and Photos in the Online Photo Gallery for easy reference.

Each standard is addressed at least once in the interactive notebook and the Mathematical Process Standards are address throughout.

FREE MISC. LESSON - “My Support System: Brief Classroom Activity for MS & HS”

by Whimsy in School Counseling
6th - 12th Grade

Identifying (and utilizing!) support systems is a powerful thing, especially for scholars who have experienced abandonment and neglect. It is also crucial to thriving in high school
This brief activity helps scholars identify those individuals who help them do well in school. You might utilize this activity on its own, or as part of a conversation with a homeroom, individual student, or class.
Each brief #supportsystem worksheet is small enough to fit discretely inside of a locker, binder, or folder. This is intentional. Where might it be most powerful for your scholars?
Use to help identify support systems, build sense of community, and even as part of academic counseling for your most at-risk scholars.
Looking for ways to increase student investment in your school community? Check out this Annual "Best Of" School Wide Survey! This download takes all the work out of running a yearly "Best of" program. Download includes the survey, informational handouts/posters, and certificates for first place and runner up.
