I have trained my parent volunteers to work with the students on fluency, basic facts, comprehension, and sometimes reviewing mistakes on tests and quizzes, one on one. My students have benefited so much from the help of my parent volunteers. I have at least one parent, on most days two, who call the students back one at a time and work with them. The binders and clipboards are always ready for the parents to jump right in and work with the students with minimal explanation after I first show them what to do. Here are some pictures of how I set things up.
Basic Facts Practice- each student has a sheet for multiplication and division, and the volunteers quiz them on their facts until they know them. Known facts are highlighted, and unknown facts are continually practiced.
This binder has the weekly one minute fluency we are working on. Students who do not pass their fluency assessments are called back one at a time to practice fluency. I got the freebie fluency practice poems from One Extra Degree here- scroll down. I can't remember where I got the mini posters (if you know, please let me know!) but I found the freebie Tracking My Fluency Growth sheets from Jen Jones of Hello Literacy here.
For my students who need extra support, I have my parent volunteers practice with phonics readers and high frequency word lists. You can find a similar word list here- I actually like this one better! It is broken down and has more than the first 300 words. The students practice their phonics readers at school and at home. A second grade teacher gave me hers when she retired- they are part of our district's Houghton Mifflin adoption.Do you have other ideas for parent volunteers to support student learning? I would love to hear your ideas!
