Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Students:

Take time to practice your reading skills this summer!   

Sight word practice  - with sound.   

Fry's Phrases - Contains 300 of the most commonly encountered words in elementary school reading.  Practice reading these short sentences and phrases to improve your speed and accuracy in reading fluency.  Remember, being a more fluent reader typically means you comprehend more of what you read.  Download these Powerpoint presentations to practice:

Fry's Phrases - First 100 words

Fry's Phrases - Second 100 words

Fry's Phrases - Third 100 words

(Once you start the slide show, the slides move from phrase to phrase automatically. Your child should be able to read the phrase/short sentence in the time given.  Students should master (be able to fluently read) the first 100 phrases before moving on to the next set of phrases.)
