This packet contains five original fluency passages related to the New Year. Each fluency passage has a small section at the top for students, parents, or teachers to track mistakes and time. A list of twenty sight words is also included. These words come straight from the five fluency passages so practice with these words will only increase student fluency and comprehension of the passages. The sight word sheet included also contains a section for students, parents, or teachers to track mistakes and time.
