For your bright and shining stars! This kit included:
* 41 First Grade Reading Fluency (Dolch) High Frequency Words
- Large Stars to hang on your Word Wall OR Ceiling!
- Flash Cards for individual or small group practice
- Blank large stars and flash cards to make your own!
These words are essential for successful reading fluency. They are the 41 most commonly appearing words in first grade reading texts. Once students are able to quickly and correctly read these words, it will improve their reading fluency (speed and accuracy) as well as comprehension. This is because readers who can quickly read and decode words are able to free up their cognitive resources for more demanding tasks, such as building comprehension.
Not only are these words critical for first graders, but you may also want to use them with struggling older readers in second grade and beyond. I have worked with middle school students who still struggle to decode these words as well.
Have fun using these stars around your room. Since my walls are covered with posters, I actually hang the large words on the CEILING! Students love looking up at the stars. For struggling readers, you can determine which words the students are still struggling with, and make an individualized flash card pack for them to practice.
Great Back to School purchase for setting up your classroom.
