PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have enjoyed getting fluency centers up and running in my classroom so much, that I have decided to try making some of my own fluency resources...although there are a lot of great fluency center resources out there.

This is a set of fluency task cards based on facts about a topic all students are sure to love, CANDY! There are 2 sets of 18 cards for a total of 36 cards. Use these two sets anytime during the year but especially during the month of October or February (as these two months are best candy-selling months out of the year according to candy companies). Also included for each set of 18 cards is an "I Can Read It 5 Times" Sheet and an "I Can Draw It" Sheet. In first grade, repeated reading cannot be overdone, that is why students have an opportunity to read each fact five times, a few times with a partner and another couple times to a listening ear. Students can also complete a visual drawing or illustration on 2 facts of their choice. These two sheets can be copied back to back.

Ideally, students would complete this as an independent center with a fluency partner, giving each other feedback on their fluent (or not-so-fluent) reading of the facts. These facts are also ideal for "close reading" of shorter text. This product is also ideal for any student reading below grade level or receiving a fluency intervention.

I have several other fluency sets in my store for grades 2-6 (CLICK HERE TO SEE) under the Custom Category, FLUENCY, but this is my first set of fluency facts written at the 1st grade level.

I hope your students enjoy reading these fun facts about candy!

Thank you for looking, wish-listing or purchasing this product. I appreciate *you*!

Thank you!
