100 Fluency sentences: The first 200 high frequency words have been put into simple sentences to help your students read fluently and with automaticity.
Use for daily practice...or...for 100th Day!
Make your 100th day a fun fluency day, reading both the first and second hundred words in sentences.
Students build confidence, fluency, automaticity while reading these basic sentences.
Reading high frequency words in context is meaningful and will help many students learn more quickly.
Reading words in isolation is good practice, but reading them in sentences helps them "hear" syntax, grammar, and expression in words...thereby facilitating comprehension.
This is not a cute set of cards. In fact, it is a NO FRILLS pack of task cards with very simple, basic sentences using mostly the first 200 hundred words, with a few nouns added to make some sentences less repetitive.
These high frequency words (derived from Fry's list) are necessary in order to become fluent readers. First grade students who can read these words with automaticity will have less difficulty reading more complex text. Reading in sentences, or in context, is more engaging than reading words in isolation.
