What can be more fun than joining a club? I started up Miss Hood's Clubs as a way to get my class to practice specific skills. I have a range of clubs to accommodate different skill levels. The clubs that are shown in the picture are: Writing to 100 Club, Writing to 30 Club, Rhyming Club, Reading Club, and Alphabet Club. The kids get to chose what club they want to join. Once the club has been chosen I give them a paper or white board to demonstrate their skills. Reading Club is the only club that is done at home with a parent. They can join as many clubs as they want it's up to them. When they get into the club I announce their name to the class and let them chose a sticker. I add new clubs every month just to keep it interesting. In my opinion, it is a great way to assess skills on a regular basis.
