This is a versatile item that can be used during your small group Guided Reading instruction, as an independent Literacy Center, or as targeted one to one intervention for struggling students.
RIME Cards: I use this deck during small groups to help students gain fluency by quickly and accurately reading long vowel pattern word endings. You should see students begin to increase speed with each subsequent use of the deck. Eventually, these go into independent centers.
WORD FAMILY Cards: Each strip shows the RIME for that word family. I use these strips during small group Guided Reading instruction to help students increase fluency. When students become familiar with their use, I put these strips out in our independent Literacy Centers. Students select and read the word strips using “whisper phones” – listening and self-assessing their own accuracy and fluency. They LOVE it!
