Description

These Phonics Fast Reads are perfect for students who are learning to read and write words with tricky vowel spelling patterns. Each Fast Read focuses on a specific phoneme and includes all of the various spelling patterns that make that phoneme. These phonics drills and repeated readings are designed to move students from slowly blending words to a level where decoding is habitual and automatic. The word sort is an added bonus!

Why did I create these Fast Reads?

I created these cards for the first grade students in my own classroom. After introducing a new phonics pattern my students need practice reading and applying the skills that they have just learned. I love using these cards as a warm up in guided reading groups. Then, I like to give my students paper copies so they can practice reading at their seats, sort the words by patterns {Word sorting sheets are included!}, and use paint dabbers to find phonics patterns in their individual books.

The Research

I created these Fast Reads as a way to improve fluency. According the the National Reading Panel, a few things are critical of good reading instruction.

Explicit instruction in phonemic awareness

Systematic phonics instruction

Methods to improve fluency

How do I use these cards in my classroom?

  • Use them with individual students.
  • Use them as a warm up in guided reading groups.
  • Send them home with parents as a tool to practice at home.
  • These cards are perfect for parent volunteers. It takes all of the guess work out of instruction.

How do I prepare the Fast Reads?

I like to print on cardstock and combine the cards with a metal ring at the top corner. If you are printing them so that individual students can take them home, you can print on white paper and staple the side.
