Do your students work on Dolch words/phrases? If so, this may be for you! After your students have completed mastery on the 11 Dolch lists, you can move them on to the Dolch phrases. There are also 11 phrase card lists/packs. There are classroom tested programs and activities for the dolch words....and now you can consider adding this to your bag of tricks for those students who are really ready to read and move on!
"Start Your Engines" is a way for your students to practice fluently reading the Dolch Phrases AND stay motivated to keep reading more and more. There are rewards included right in this pack. All you have to do is print, laminate, and hand it to your students!
In this packet you will get all 11 packs of phrases, which you can easily print, laminate, and put on a loose leaf book ring. These would be great for your students' individual book boxes and/or for you to place in a common area for children to take as needed. Each child will receive a book mark (boy and girl available) to keep track of how many phrase packets they have mastered. Each time a child can read a phrase pack fluently, they will get a hold punch in one of the checkered flags on the book mark.
When they get to list 9, there are boy/girl trophy necklace pendants available for you to print, laminate, and put on a ribbon for them to wear proudly! Their hard work is really paying off! Then, when they get to list 10, they will receive their golden key token (just print, laminate, and cut out). These are their keys to reading. On the final set of phrases, your students will earn their "license to read!!" Add a student photo and fill in their personalized information---and your students will feel so confident about their ability to read independently!
I truly hope you and your students enjoy cruising through reading this 40 page document to help them cruise through reading! Check out the preview for an overview of all that is included!!
