I'm really excited about focusing more on fluency. I wish I had purchased these wonderful fluency packs at the beginning of the year, but we can end this school year with a bang and I will for sure start next year with more fluency. This fluency pack is amazing. It has something for every child in your classroom. I'm using them as homework for my higher level students. The lower level passages are too advanced for my low students to use as homework. If you need something for your higher level students this is a great product.
My favorite Teacher Pay Teacher store and favorite blog to follow is First Grade Parade. If you haven't followed this amazing teacher or checked out her store please stop and do it now. Cara shares so many creative ideas. I try to buy as many of her centers as I possibly can. My dream is to be her when I grow up. These sight word fluency passages are perfect. These passages may look too easy, but I promise you will have students who do not know these words and the repetition of the words in these phrases will build fluency quickly. My students love these passages and beg to read them to me as I time them for one minute everyday. They have try to beat their time from the previous day. I'm using these as homework for my low and middle reading groups, but I also keep a copy at my reading table for each child and have them practice reading the passage for one minute each day as well. It only takes one minute and it's so worth your time. This product has several centers and quiet choices too. It's worth the cost I'm loving it and so are my students.
