Use our Fry word fluency sentences to help students improve their fluency skills. Focuses on the first 500 words. Free from The Curriculum Corner.
We have had some requests for a checklist format to go along with our Fry fluency sentences so that teachers can conduct quick assessments of these sentences with students.
For these sentences, we separated the Fry list into groups of twenty words. We then wrote a set of sentences that includes all the words in that group of 20, so that students can get practice decoding and using the words they are learning in context. (Special thanks to Jessica Guelcher for writing the fifth hundred!!)
The sentences include statements, questions, commands and exclamations so that your students are practicing their intonation for the different types.
Here we have created that teacher checklist for the Fry fluency sentences, as well as pages of the sentences for students to read for the assessment. We also updated the previous Fry fluency cards that we had posted.
(Each set of 100 words is provided in a different color for easy organization and assignments, however the groups of twenty have been noted on each card.)
The cards are great for practice of these sentences. You can place these at a literacy center and have students practice with partners or independently. Differentiation is easy because you can tell students which color of cards they need to focus on.
You can also print these to send home with students for practice. Even one or two cards each evening for early readers is a great idea for having them work on their fluency.
