In this product you will find easy access to content that applies directly to Open Court 2016. This will help guide, supplement, and enrich your fluency instruction. These fluency helpers will help your prep time with mini-lessons, small groups, spelling instruction/testing, and student’s at home practice.
Units are built into three lessons. Lessons include 5 days of instruction per Open Court. Each of the days include a new sound spelling pattern. I have collected the words that fit each sound spelling pattern to create the following resources.
1.Blending/Fluency practice sheets: These can be used in class and for at home practice. They include handwriting lines for students to practice penmanship. I have placed parent instructions on each page to inform parents how to use these to work with their children.
2.“Fix it up” fluency sentences: These are designed to help students continue to build fluency and practice their sentence building skills with focus on capital letters, spelling, and punctuation. Teachers can use these in small group writing, whole group mini-lessons to teach editing skills, or as a morning warm up in writing journals.
3.Spelling words: Each lesson has 5-10 spelling words per week. These were compiled to save teachers time from having to find the right words to match Open Court. Each list has review words from the previous week.
