*Here is the next set of fifteen fluency diamonds from Fry's List of the top one thousand words to know. These diamonds are from the fourth hundred list of words.
*These diamonds were constructed with vowel sounds dominating a diamond. In other words, students that struggle with r-controlled vowels will benefit from Diamonds 2, 8, and 9.
*As I've begun teaching with a smartboard this year, I realized these diamonds are great for displaying on the board. This becomes a group activity for reciting words or can be a game where students come up to the board to slap, underline, circle, or trace over a word. Students can also find a matching word!
*Most of all, fluency diamonds are a resource for building fluency skills with your students. My students love the diamond shape and know this is a quick "starter" for reading groups. "Are we doing the diamonds today?" was a question I hear often.
*Enjoy!!!! ~ Hats off to Teachers!
