These pages are designed to help you form Fry word tracking folders for students.
We like having our students help track their Fry word growth – it holds them more accountable and when they are a part of tracking data, they tend to get more excited. We envision each student having their own Fry Word Folder. (Of course, if you have a second grader who has mastered the first 500 Fry words, this might not be the best use of that student’s time. It’s ok to use this tool with some of your students but leave others out if it’s not needed.)
You will find the complete, free download at the bottom of this post. Look for the bold, green words.
In this Fry Folder students will have charts that allow them to check off when a word is mastered. You can choose to allow students to check off their own words or ask them to only check off words when they are conferencing with a teacher. You might choose to just use a pen or make it special by using a stamp or sticker.
Along with the check-off pages, we have included Fry Fluency lists that are designed to help students work on their reading fluency. We suggest providing students with a long bookmark so that they can cover columns and focus on one section of words at a time.
Use the my words of the week pages if you want students to choose or you to choose specific focus words for each week.
There are also tracking pages – a variety are included so that you can choose the one that fits your classroom.
You can download the collection here: Fry Word Tracking Printables.
You might also choose to include our Fry Fluency Sentences in student folders. You can find these here: Fry Fluency Sentences. We suggest using the Fry Fluency Sentence Student Reading Pages version. These have a vertical layout and will fit nicely in folders.
