Unfortunately, we all have students coming to us each year who read below their grade level. These fluency practice cards will help your students quickly and effectively practice targeted sight words and reading phrases during interventions. These are based on Fry's sight word lists.

Check out the preview for details!

This Product Includes:

✓ Sight word and reading phrases practice cards

How You Can Use This Product:

✓ Centers

✓ Peer tutoring/pairings

✓ Homework practice

✓ As a game, similar to the card game called War

✓ During RtI

✓ Tutoring

✓ Guided reading

How I've Found Success With This Product:

✓ I always start my students on the second set of 100 words and have them read through them.

✓ To move on to the next hundred set, they have to be able to see and say at least 21 out of the 28 words (75%).

✓ Any words she or he did not master in that set moves forward to the next set.

✓ Then, during the same time block, I’ll have students read the phrases.

✓ Just like reading the sight words, students must master 15 out of the 20 phrases (75%).

✓ It is not necessary to be on the same set of phrases and words.

How You Can Prep This Product:

✓ I always print each set out on a different color of card stock paper (for durability), cut, and laminate.

✓ Then, they are bagged up and ready to go!

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
