I designed this packet so that I can work on fluency with my emerging readers. They are so excited when they can read a short emergent reader! Many have exclaimed, “I want to read more! I don’t want to stop!” So, why not design a unit so that they don’t have to stop?
In this unit you will find several different activities that are designed to work together during full group, small group and center time for the children to practice reading predictable sentences about bats for fluency!
Specifically, you will find these activities:
-Pocket chart activity for full group introducing the concept of “predictable” sentences and patterns.
-sentence strips with predictable sentences to be put on a ring for independent practice. Each set is color coded and features a certain sight word.
-sentence strips for partner practice.
-roll and read strips for either large pocket charts or the student table top ones
-spin and read sentences
-“Pick a Card”- partner or group activity to use during centers (or I love printing enough for my entire class to work in pairs, so that I can circulate and listen to my readers! This is an excellent way to do a “whole class quick check”.)
-Sentence building mats: mats, predictable sentence cards and word cards to build the sentences
-bat pointers you can make so that the children are tracking their print!
-“Find a Partner Who” puzzle cards- students match color word to color bat. I also use this sometimes as a quick way to partner up my students!
It is common core aligned and covers these standards:
RF.K.3 I can read my high frequency words.
RF.K.4 I can read with purpose and understanding.
My kiddos LOVED this set so much, I have decided I will be making more with different themes!
