Reading Tic-Tac-Toe

I have a few high readers this year who are so sweet and love school so much that they are just going with the flow---I reach their level at guided groups, but haven't modified their homework.  I've tried modifying homework in years past---but I feel like my high students get neglected. With our new scheduling this year, I feel like I don't have enough time to plan for daily instruction--let alone planning to reach my high achievers.  I talked to a FABULOUS teacher in my building, and she showed me her tic-tac-toe board for spelling. I've seen several spelling tic-tac-toe boards through the past few years, but I haven't seen one for reading.  So I went back to her again today, and she gave me some task cards to look through (though they were 5th grade)--and I started thinking about what we're doing in our Treasures series so that my students can have "similar" homework.  I'm sending home their library books/baggy books/reading book--whatever book I can get students interested in reading---and I'm sending this home with my advanced readers.  I have not tried the tic-tac-toe boards before so I hope this works.  Have any of you used them?  Do they work for you?

  2. I love your blog and am finding all your activities so exciting! This is probably a not-so-smart question, but how do you make your tid-tac-toe boards?? Thanks.

  3. We are pretty able to substantiate every possible detail in this regard because in most of the cases these are even said to be so important. punctuation checker free online
