Roll and Read Fluency Phrases

Hey friends! Two weeks til we head back to school! My room is all set up {thanks to teaching a reading camp last week with our reading coach!} and now comes the fun!! Now that the furniture is in place, I am blog stalking and creating cuteness for my room! :) Pics to come!

One of the things on my Summer Bucket List was to organize my small group lessons and materials. I purged a lot of games I purchased in my earlier years of teaching because of all the awesomeness you guys create!!! I found I wasn't reaching for those anymore because y'all were creating better and cuter things! 

After moving to first grade from Kinder two years ago, I began to focus more on fluency with my firsties. One thing I like to use in my small groups is Fluency Phrases. Fluency phrases are 3 word phrases that combine sight words and cvc words. These phrases help students develop and practice fluency. We always warm up our fluency fingers {our pointer finger} by waving it around like we just don't care and shaking it in the ayer, a ayer, ayer!!! :) I use these to warm up at the beginning of our group, or to close our group if we have a few extra minutes! I love these because all you need is a die and the paper. Easy peasy! :)

Click {here} to check out my newest TpT unit, Roll and Read Fluency Phrases {Short Vowels}. I am working on the Long Vowel version! :)


I will email this activity to five peeps on Wednesday, August 1. Just comment below to enter! :)

Have a fun in the sun summer week! :)

This looks like a great activity! Fluency can be such a tricky thing for some kids. I just finished teaching a fluency summer class... even my 5th/6th grade group could have benefited from something like this!

Roll and read sounds like a great activity. I don't know if you have variations in the game but it would be neat to give them a vowel die as well so they bounce between the boards (roll 4a or 3e). Do you have them do different types of voices when working on fluency?
