DIBELS: What Are You Doing to Get Your Students Ready for Fluency and Retelling

Does anyone have any good ideas to help get the children ready for the fluency and retelling portion of DIBELS (December)? Some of my darlings can barely read. They are doing well to sound and say words much less tell what they are reading. Also, does anyone have any strategies to help the advanced students too?

My firsties were tested 2 weeks ago. I'm still waiting for the DIBELS next materials to begin our bi-weekly testing.

So many of mine seem to come along without any ability to read (even their names)! We start with letter sounds, then move to blending: change the letter sound with word families: l-ap, s-ap, c-ap, etc. Then we work on sight words from the Fry list 25 at a time. I record the ones they don't know each day and we spell them out with letter tiles or on a dry erase board. I do all of this 1-on-1. After they master the first 50 words, we work on repeated readings for first grade passages. I record the scores. We do "cold, warm, and hot reads." Cold read-- never saw it before. Warm read-- we practiced it a lot, then student read it aloud independently for 1 minutes. Hot read-- LOTS of practice done and we record the words per minute a final time before we move to the next fluency prompt. I hope you find something that works for you!

What your kids are able to do now and what they will be able to do in a few short months is quite different. In a couple of weeks, I will begin teaching them word solving strategies, and in November, we complete a unit on retelling. Many of my students do not meet the winter benchmarks for DIBELS but do by the spring. After the winter assessments when Progress Monitoring begins for ORF and the Retelling, students will get stronger just by sheer practice. That along with their continued guided reading and scaffolding pushes them to the benchmark by the end of the year.

With my low students I start by having them work on sight words, blending, and phrasing from Fry phrases. I also start progress monitoring my students on ORF during October. I also do nonsense words though. With my high students I start them on phrasing harder fry phrases. I also start them on AR tests. This motivates them to read more which in turn increases their fluency.

Your post was very helpful! I was wondering what "fluency prompts" do you use?

I am concerned about my low students but our reading specialists have added a literacy block to the end of our day to help them. I teach the highest reading class and found something called the reading race that I'm starting with them next week. I'm hoping that this helps them.

home twice a week. Students read the same story twice. I will begin three times a week at some point. I love the Reading Race, but my problem with that is our school has many ESL students and I'm not sure if they would have the support at home. I wouldn't want any child to feel left out. How could I address that concern so all kids would feel successful?

I have been on the site every day since I found it. I forgot to say after you get in to pcboe.net go to schools, then find Lakewood Elementary, then faculty & staff. Choose Mrs Schofield, go to links and you will find Dr. Elder's website.
This is where you need to go. Sorry I wasn't clearer.
