Beginning readers need practice segmenting words, reading sight words, and developing reading fluency. As they become fluent in their reading, they also need practice identifying, spelling, and writing the various graphemes/spelling patterns for each vowel sound. This bundle is perfect for students who are beginning to decode words with various vowel teams and long vowel spelling patterns. It also works well for fluent readers who need to begin to apply these spelling patterns in their writing.

This bundle includes 10 fluency passages with comprehension questions and word sorts, 13 sheets of fluency phrases, word lists, and data sheets. Enjoy!

16 Sheets of Fluency Phrases and Data Sheets {includes all of the preciously listed skills and 2nd Grade Dolch words}

These fluency phrases were created to be used with my guided reading groups, but you can use them as you wish. During our guided reading group time I give each student the same list (these students are working on the same skills). They then whisper read each phrase. I listen carefully, and help students with words as needed. Each time they read the phrase, they check off one of the three boxes.

Word List & Data Sheets

This is basically a list of words in a table format! It’s nothing fancy, but my students LOVE reading these words in guided reading group and as a partner activity! The table and data sheets are also great for keeping documentation of what students know!

Some ideas of using these tables…

-Read a word and paint a word

-Read a word and highlight a word

-Use dot paint or crayons with partners to play a word version of (tic-tac-toe). Students have to read the word before dotting or coloring the word.

-Cut out the words. The teacher says a word and the first student to find the word gets the card. The winner is the student with the most cards.

-You could also just use these tables as a quick assessment. The Dolch words are listed in order of frequency.

Grapheme Cards

In my classroom I use letter cards to help my students identify letter sounds. When I hold up the letter “oi” my students must say “oi says /oi/”. I really feel like these cards help my students develop automatic identification of the spelling pattern.
