Summer is FINALLY here for us WNY teachers! My last day of school was yesterday, and I am beyond ready to relax and recharge. Of course, in between relaxing and recharging, I will be planning and thinking ahead to next year.
This past year, I’ve been slowly building-up my fluency toolbox and creating resources that can be used as interventions with my RTI students. I like to dig deep into fluency and really target the specific area of fluency they struggle with. (Pace? Phrasing? Expression? Attention to Punctuation?) With a new year of fluency groups in mind, I created a collection of differentiated “Scoop It” Fluency Phrasing Task Cards.
“Scoop It” Fluency Phrasing Task Cards are geared toward elementary-level students. They’re easy to use and perfect for the classroom! They can be used in many ways and are helpful for introducing, reviewing, practicing, and assessing fluency phrasing with your students.
(Sets 1-8 are ALL currently available on TpT!)
These task card sets can be sent home for practice, used as a center, incorporated into Daily Five, or used in small groups. Directions and suggestions for use are included with each set.
Each “Scoop It” Fluency Phrasing Task Card set includes the same components, but just increases in difficulty. You can purchase one set, or you can purchase the whole collection! There are two formats of task cards within each set. The task cards with scoop lines are perfect for students to practice reading with phrasing, following the scoop lines with their fingers as they read. The task cards without scoops are helpful for students who need practice with identifying appropriate phrases within a sentence. If you laminate the cards, students can draw in the scoop lines (using dry-erase markers) and can practice grouping the different words together. They can then practice reading the sentences afterward. The 48 task cards in each set each feature a targeted phonics pattern. Set 1 starts off with pre-primer words and basic CVC word patterns. Each set increases in difficulty. By Set 8, your students will be interacting with multi-syllable words and complex vowel patterns. Use multiple task card sets to differentiate your practice and instruction. All of the “Scoop It” task card sets are currently available in my MsJordanReads store. The collection consists of the following sets:
- SET 1: Pre-Primer (Dolch), Short Vowel CVC Words
- SET 2: Primer (Dolch), Short Vowel Blends & Digraphs Words
- SET 3: Grade 1 (Dolch), Long Vowel Magic E & Vowel Teams
- SET 4: Grade 2 (Dolch), Short & Long Vowel Bossy R Words
- SET 5: Grade 3 (Dolch), Contractions & Simple Word Endings
- SET 6: Dolch Nouns, Diphthongs & Vowel Digraphs
- SET 7: Compound Words & Advanced Word Endings
