Use these nature fluency sentences for some spring fluency practice perfect for your Earth Day study.

Getting your students outside on these beautiful spring days?  Then here are some nature themed fluency sentences to go with all of your outdoor lessons and activities.

You can use the fluency sentences and other printables to put together a literacy center for your classroom or for independent work.

Nature Fluency Sentences and Fluency Booklet free from The Curriculum Corner | Roll, Read, KeepBesides 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 a unit surrounding nature.   Students can read them and make text-to-self connections as they write about what it means (or has meant) in their worlds.

Download the fluency booklet here: My Nature Fluency Book   It can be so difficult  to find just right books for beginning readers.  Use the nature fluency 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 it on a page in their book.  Students can then write or glue their sentence in the booklet below the illustration.

Download the Roll, Read, Keep board here: Nature Themed Roll, Read & Keep   Print in color and laminate.  You will also need the nature themed 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.
