Reading fluently takes a lot of practice especially for our struggling readers. Word families helps many of our readers to see the "chunks" in words and become better readers and gain fluency skill. That fluency then connects with accuracy and comprehension.
There are two parts to this product.
There are word family cards that you can laminate, hole punch, and put on metal rings. There are two sets for each word family. One set, the "chunk" is highlighted in red, and the second set, the "chunk" is not highlighted. There is also a set of nonsense words with the short vowel to practice. One set has the short vowel highlighted, the other set, does not. I did include a few beginning and ending blends. You can add or take away whatever cards you need for your different leveled readers.
The second set of fluency practice has sentences. The students roll the die and then read the corresponding sentences. The word "chunks" or families are highlighted at the top. Just print the pages and place into sheet protectors for your students to use. Place the sheets in a three ring binder for easy access and practice.
This product is great hands on practice for your students to enjoy in many different ways. They can be used in literacy centers, Daily 5, Guided Reading, whole class, small group, introducing the sounds and practicing "chunking".
The following word families are included in this product:
Short a fluency families
Short e fluency families
Short i fluency families
Short o fluency families
Short u fluency families
Plus, 90 extra mixed vowel nonsense word cards.
I hope this is helpful for you and your students!
