I created this set of strips (like flash cards) for my students to practice reading CVC (short vowels), CCVC (consonant blends and digraphs- short vowels), CVCe (long vowels with silent/magic e), and CCVCe ( long vowels/silent/magic e with beginning consonant blends/digraphs). As students practice reading these, they will gain much needed fluency which will facilitate many other reading skills.
Copy the strips pages on card stock, laminate if possible for durability, cut apart, and place in word work centers. Students can work individually, in pairs, or cooperatively in small groups. I’ve included 72 three-word strips which contain a CVC-CVCe pair plus a CCVC or CCVCe word, and 30 strips using some of the pairs and blend/digraph words in complete sentences to practice their fluency. There are also 2 blank templates you, the teacher, can use to add any word pair/blends and sentences of your choice. I hope your students enjoy and gain fluency as they use these!
