These strips are a very simple tool to help your students develop their reading fluency.
***Updated 6/29/13 with new fonts and many new practice strips added!!
They progress in this order:
Fry’s sight words (In groups of 25—the first 300 Fry’s sight words)
Fry’s Phrases (For the First, Second, and Third 100 Fry’s Sight words)
Also included are the first 220 Dolch words and Dolch phrases.
These fluency strips can help your students develop their reading fluency with just a few minutes of practice each day.
It is easy to differentiate with this set!
• Give strips to students to use as bookmarks to practice with during independent reading times.
• Use strips as a warm-up to your guided reading lessons
• Copy on transparencies to have students practice choral reading together.
• Use as practice during your RTI lessons.
• Have a “Fluency Five” for partners to practice a group of fluency strips together for five minutes each day.
**I also recommend copying each grouping of fluency strips on a different color of paper, so it is easier to differentiate among them. Cardstock or construction paper work great, but regular copy paper can work, too.
**These can be cut apart as fluency strips, or left intact as fluency practice mats.
