Five Minutes to Sight Word Fluency

(0)
Differentiated site word practice. Over 140 pages of sight word printables -- These blackline masters help students learn site words by reading passages and writing sentences -- and then repeating the process. Sight words are the most commonly used words in reading and writing and represent about 67% of words students encounter in daily text. These words are often grouped and learned by grade level. The site words contained herein are the first one hundred, plus essential words from subsequent lists designed to help struggling and early readers recognize them automatically. The following passages are great for increasing the fluency of beginning readers. They start out easy and become increasingly difficult, but not too difficult. The passages may be used as bell ringers, buddy work and homework practice, or all three, as research indicates that repeated reading of the same passage helps increase fluency. The passages are basic and enable students to read from simple to more complex sentences as they become more familiar with the particular site word around which each passage is written. Research also indicates that memorizing site words by list is less effective and less desirable than through authentic passage reading and writing exercises. The value of identifying and truly learning site words exists within reading practice and even phonics lessons (Farrell, Osenga and Hunter, 2013) that mimic genuine reading work. That’s why we’ve designed our worksheets to isolate each word, put it in a passage and then require students to think about the word as they write their own sentences and then go back and re-read what they wrote.

Daily Quick Writes for the Catholic Teen Preparing for Confirmation

Daily Quick Writes for the Catholic Teen Preparing for Confirmation

(0)
This 162 page workbook combines Bible study, relevant issues, fluency and infuses a habit of reflection and is perfect for school, home school, bible study, and Catechism. According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: “The Church encourages Catholics to make reading the Bible part of their daily prayer lives. Reading these inspired words, people grow deeper in their relationship with God and come to understand their place in the community God has called them to in himself.” (http://www.usccb.org/bible/understanding-the-bible/index.cfm) In addition to Catholic Scripture for reflection -- these quick writes contain imperative study topics for Confirmation including: The Nicene Creed, The Apostle’s Creed, The Beatitudes, The Ten Commandments and relevant Sacred Scriptures: The Rich Man and Lazarus, The Money Changers in the Temple, The Last Judgment, Jesus Announces His Mission, 1 Corinthians 15:47, and The Temptation. This workbook combines Bible study, relevant issues, fluency and infuses a habit of reflection perfect for middle schoolers -- this version specific to eighth grade -- but relevant up through high school. Each Daily Devotion takes Bible passages and requires students to think and write about things important to them, things happening in their lives – relevant to their world. By connecting standards, His Word and their lives – students gain a greater understanding of the teachings of our Lord and Savior – and gain valuable reading and writing skills required for college in the process. This is quick Bible study meant to bring students closer to His grace and should be engaging. Most Bible verses were taken from the New International Version; however please email publisher@luckyjenny.com if you prefer a different version for your school or students. What is a Quick Write: The University of West Virginia describes a Quick Write as “a literacy strategy which can be used in any content area to develop writing fluency, to build the habit of reflection into a learning experience, and to informally assess student thinking. The strategy asks learners to respond in 2–10 minutes to an open-ended question or prompt posed by the teacher. (https://wvde.state.wv.us/strategybank/QuickWrites.html). May be used in classrooms as a blackline master, but works best if each student has his or her own book to reflect back on. Books available at Amazon or other major book outlets: ISBN 978-1541045194
