PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Make learning the first 300 Fry Words fun with these One Breath Boxes! They are the brainchild of Dustin over at teachertipster.com and I am so grateful for his blessing to share these.

Here's how they work: the student takes one deep breath and tries to read all of the words in a box. Once a student masters a set, they move on to the next one - they move at their own pace.

This pack focuses on the first 300 Fry words with two pages for each set of 25 to ensure mastery rather than memorization of word order. There are also blank templates included so students can make their own personal One Breath pages based on the words they are working on.

Some options for classroom use:
- Laminate for use in a center {good for reading buddies or word work station}

- Use on SmartBoard with whole group or as a center

- Keep in daily take home folder {great practice for those students who do not have support at home because they can do them on their own}

- Guided Reading Warm Up or Morning Work {they start as soon as they get to the table - no wasted time!}

- Have students create their own with the blank template included {may focus on: word wall words, word families, phonics patterns, new vocabulary, or theme words from a unit}

UPDATE JANUARY 2014
- Black and white templates included
- Tracking page for students

So wonderful! My kids use them regularly during "downtime" in literacy centers, and it's part of my "fun friday" centers as well, because they enjoy it so much! They especially like to use timers to see if they can do the boxes faster than they did before. What a great idea!

I just downloaded these one breath sight words to use in September and the words did not come out, just black lines where words should be... I tried downloading again but the same thing happened...can you help or advise??? Thanks in advance.

On  June 18, 2013DK Coleman answered:
Hi Patricia,

Sorry to hear that you're having difficulty with the file. The black bars are usually caused by one of the following:

1- If you are on a Mac, make sure that the file is opening with Adobe Reader (not Preview). You will want to find the file in your Downloads folder, right click, and select Open With Adobe Reader.

2- Make sure you have the most recent version of Adobe (free download on the Adobe site).

If it's still not opening correctly, please email me at donnakcoleman@gmail.com and I'll send it directly to you!

Hope this helps! Thanks so much,
Donna

Hi I have 2 questions.
1) When you make the next set of One Breath Boxes can you email us so we can know it is available?
2) I was wondering if you could explain your system for using this product. For instance do you give the students a sticker each time they are able to do it or do you work with students independently. Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi Erica,
So sorry for the delay getting back to you. If you send me an email at donnakcoleman@gmail.com, I'll send you a note when I post the next set. You will also get a notification if you follow my store.

For your second question, I use the one breath boxes in an informal way in my room. The children take them home in their home reading folders and we use them during partner reading and guided reading groups. When they are able to complete a set, they let me know and we do a "quick check". I have extra copies of the sets available and they take the next one and add it to their folder. I do not formally track these but the children are very good at letting me know when they've mastered a set. This works well for me as I teach 2 classes each day (40 children) so it is not too time consuming but keeps them working at a challenging level. Hope this makes sense! Thanks so much for your interest.
Warm Regards,
Donna
