These St. Patrick’s Day Fluency Sentences are great to print for a quick center during the month of March.
This center set is designed to give your students extra fluency practice with a fun theme for March. We have included a variety of activities to be used with our sentence collection.
Just print on card stock, cut and laminate. Besides fluency practice, here are a few ideas on how you might use these sentences:
Sentence Sort – The set includes statements, questions, exclamations and commands. Let your students use sentence clues to sort them into the different kinds of sentences.
Sentence Scramble – Cut these sentences into individual words and put each set in a baggie or envelope for students to unscramble and write on dry erase boards or blank paper.
Illustrate the Sentence – Have students choose one sentence to write at the bottom of a paper and then illustrate to show they understand the meaning.
Writing Prompts – Choose some of these to use as writing prompts during your unit on St. Patrick’s Day. Students can read them and make text-to-self connections as they write about what it means (or has meant) in their worlds.

My St. Patrick’s Day Fluency Book It can be so difficult to find just right books for beginning readers. Use the St. Patrick’s Day sentences and this booklet to create a book your struggling readers can read on their own. During small group instruction, have students practice reading a sentence then illustrate. Students can glue their phrase in the booklet below the illustration. This is a great way to build confidence as students add phrases throughout the fall!
Roll, Read & Keep Print in color and laminate. You will also need the St. Patrick’s Day fluency sentences laminated and cut apart. Students place a sentence on each box, roll a die and read the sentence matching their roll. If the student can read the sentence, it is kept. Students take turns rolling until all of them are gone.
