Reading Word Families Fluently {freebie!}

I put together some word family fluency practice to help my kiddos with their reading fluency. One of the most important skills for beginning readers to attain is fluency in reading. Fluency means the ability to read text quickly and accurately. When students gain an understanding of word families, and start to see “chunks” in words, they become better readers. 

Instead of sounding out each phoneme, or sound, in the word, they are able to transfer what they know about “chunks” and apply it to their reading. Word family fluency is a great way for your students to practice reading accurately and fluently. I grouped all the word family words on a ring for my students to flip through and practice reading.

The word family chunks are color coded to help your students see each chunk!

These cards would also be great to copy onto colored paper!

And I also included some words with blends for your "advanced" readers ;)

The other fluency page is all on one sheet. You can slide the page into sheet protectors and keep them in a binder at your reading table! This would be great quick practice before starting your reading groups!

The students can roll a dice, or you can just tell them which row to read.

You can grab this freebie in my TpT store!

You can also find the rest of the short a word family words in my store!
