by Jill & Cathy on April 23, 2014

Fry Fluency Cards Set 5 by The Curriculum CornerThank you to Jessica Guelcher who created this set of fluency cards for her classroom and decided to share them with us.  We so appreciate your willingness to share!

These cards are designed to give beginning readers fluency practice.  This set includes all of the words in the fifth 100 Fry words.  These words have been used to create sentences.  Some other common words have been added.  You can cut apart the cards, have students illustrate the sentence for visual cues and place in a baggie.  During independent reading time this gives students reading practice that is just right for them.
