Six-Minute Sessions—Regular Practice with Reading and Spelling

Students need regular practice with reading and spelling to achieve automaticity. As some students have a very short attention span, the following activities have been selected to provide the necessary repetition in very short bites. The aim is for the student to work within their concentration span and to achieve success.

The goal of the six-minute sessions is to provide:

A bit of reading
A bit of writing, and
A bit of fun
Activities can be done as separate 2-minute sessions or combined. Set a timer for two minutes. Stop the activity the moment the buzzer goes. At this point, the student is free to go. If the student wants to continue, the adult is free to go!
