This tool WILL increase all of your students' reading fluency! A lack of Academic Vocabulary (Tier Two) has been proven to greatly reduce reading fluency in Kindergarten through grade 4. This is a tremendous resource for ESL/ELL's too!
Tier Two words are also known as "general academic words." They are far more likely to appear in written texts THAN in speech. They appear in all sorts of texts: informational texts, technical texts and literary texts.Use this resource as a student guide, make flash cards or create word walls. I have compiled lists for grades Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3 and Grade 4 after many years of analyzing multiple curriculum and grade-level texts/materials. This will assist you in elevating each of your child's reading fluency and automaticity!!
Enjoy and happy teaching!
