FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Free High Frequency Words in Sentences to Read and Write”

by Growing Smart Readers
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

100 Fluency sentences: The first 200 high frequency words have been put into simple sentences to help your students read fluently and with automaticity.
Use for daily practice...or...for 100th Day!
Make your 100th day a fun fluency day, reading both the first and second hundred words in sentences.
Students build confidence, fluency, automaticity while reading these basic sentences.
Reading high frequency words in context is meaningful and will help many students learn more quickly. Reading words in isolation is good practice, but reading them in sentences helps them "hear" syntax, grammar, and expression in words...thereby facilitating comprehension.
This is a NO FRILLS pack of task cards with very simple, basic sentences using mostly the first 200 hundred words, with a few nouns added to make some sentences less repetitive. The cards (or pages if you choose not to cut out the cards) are intended to be read quickly and accurately. For writing, they can be used for dictation.
These high frequency words (derived from Fry's list) are necessary in order to become fluent readers. First grade students who can read these words with automaticity will have less difficulty reading more complex text. Reading in sentences, or in context, is more engaging than reading words in isolation.
*These drill cards can be read quickly, in a circle, a small group, or with a partner.
*Send home for extra practice!
*Identify parts of speech (primarily nouns and verbs).
*Dictate sentences to practice high frequency words.
*Use for copying sentences and practicing handwriting.
*Use the cards as play cards for a game board.
*Use as a tool for tutoring, partner reading, independent reading.
*Use as a prep tool for reading assessments.
*Have handy at literacy center, for early finishers.
A certificate of completion is included!
Kids receive a certificate for successfully reading 100 sentences with fluency!
Print out on white or bright colored paper.
Laminate for long-lasting use. For your literacy center or for individual use, I suggest punching a hole in each of the cards and attaching them to a ring. (It’s been my experience that students feel a sense of ownership and a reading goal if they have their own set held by a ring to practice.)
These are simple sentences, but you can be creative by printing on colored paper. Use them in different ways as mentioned above.* You‘ll find that you can incorporate these cards in different ways to supplement your lessons.
As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. It helps inform me as to what to improve and what to create next. I always enjoy hearing how everyone uses resources from my store. So, please take a moment and let me know how useful ithis was or how it worked for you.
