DIBELS & that dreaded nonsense word.......

Hey guys, how's it going?

We are learning about insects this week, and I hope to share pictures of that later this week.

In our PLC meeting this morning, we discussed that DIBELS would be coming up

soon (blah), and while we thought that it might be going away, 

it looks like it could be here to stay for a bit more (aaaarrrrgggghhhh!). 

So for Nonsense Word Fluency (NWF), not only do we want 25 sounds, we want them to be able to

also blend and read 8 words.

For some of my kiddos, that's easy peasy!!! 

For some others, they look at the test with horror!

Especially since we're confusing 'e' for 'i' (y'all know how us southerners are!).

So, I got some practice cards together, hoping to ease the anxiety while they practice. 

There's also a recording sheet, in case you want to make it a center.
