New Item Posted: Speed It Up Fluency Center
I have just uploaded this over 80 page item which has all you need to make over 350 fluent phrase/ sentence cards. The item comes ready to differentiate according to the reading levels of your students. It includes phrases/ sentences using
•the Pre Primer Dolch Word List (for K and struggling readers at the first-third grade level)
•the first 100 words from the Fry Instant Word List
•the second 100 words from the Fry Instant Word List
•the third 100 words from the Fry Instant Word List
I have these strips printed and laminated on card stock. Each level of difficulty is a different color so I can keep track. I use a simple count down/ count up timer. The children time each other to see how many phrase/ sentence cards they can correctly read in a minute. They love beating their own times, it's amazing! Each time they practice, they are improving their reading fluency. I use this center throughout the year and my students never get bored of it. In addition, this is a great tool in tutoring, in pullout for students receiving literacy support as well as in after school programs. This fun literacy center fosters repeated reading which gives students the needed practice of reading high-frequency words and developing fluency and proficiency which will boost comprehension.
