Read It! Write It! The simplest, easiest fluency helper for your little learners. Your students will gain so many engaged minutes of reading fluently, working and collaborating with a partner, and practice writing all at the same time!
Here’s how it works:
Print, laminate, and cut all of the cards. Punch a hole in the corner of each of the smaller cards. Add these to rings. You do not have to add all of the same type of cards to the same rings. For example, you can have 8 cards on the cvc ring and add the rest to different rings.
For organization, I’ve added which pile/type of words each card belongs to in case they are mixed up.
To make your Read It! Write It! Flipper book, print, laminate and cut around each of the pages. Line up your cards in the same place and punch two holes. Add rings to make a book.
Here’s how to use it:
The small cards can be used in a partner style or with the teacher. The students will flip through the cards and read each word. As they read it, they will write it. I let my kids get a sheet of writing paper, iPad with the Doodle Buddy app, or dry erase board to write on. If using with the teacher, the teacher can determine how and where they can write. I let my students write on our table with a dry erase. With the book, the students will write the words as they read the picture. For the rhyming portion, they can produce a rhyming word or write a set of rhyming words. For the blends, students can just write the blend that they hear.
