These Fry Word cards are accompanied by a collection of activity boards that will fit well into your word work time!
We have recreated some of our Fry resources so that they are easier to download and print, but also so that we can give you some new games & ideas. The first set of downloads is our simple Fry cards. We have included all 1,000 in this post! We have also created a collection of activity boards to be used with the cards or any other types of words you are focusing on in your classroom. You can find this download at the very bottom of this post. For both downloads, just look for the bold, blue words!
Word Cards – We suggest for fluency practice purposes you print each set of these Fry cards on different colored card stock for easy sorting and storing. (You might want to print two of each set for simple matching games.) Another idea is to print all 1,000 on the same color card stock and laminate for various language sorts. Simply pick out the cards you want to correspond with whatever type of sort you want your students to do – nouns, plural nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. For sentence writing practice you could put words in a basket and have students choose words randomly to write in sentences. Creative writing can also be fun by having students choose ten words and figure out how to incorporate all ten in a creative story. There are so many ways to use all of the word cards in this Fry set!
And don’t forget to send the link to this post to the parents of your students so that they can print these cards for practice at home!
Our activity boards are designed to be used with any set of words.
Fry Word Activity Boards – This set of boards begins with activities on half pages of paper. These are basic tasks to be completed with any set of words. They includes tasks such as putting words in ABC order, forming words with Play-Dough or making words using magnets. We envision these being laminated and placed at a center along with the necessary materials.
You will also find full page activity sheets which are perfect for printing on colored card stock and laminating. Place at a center with dry erase markers and the Fry Word cards that fit the needs of your students. To play the Write the Room activities, we suggest placing 5 or 10 cards around the room, numbered 1 – 10. Students then search the room to find the cards and record the words in the correct spot on their recording forms.
Included at the end are two blank recording pages to use as needed in your classroom.
