I’m SO happy to announce that the Reading Warm-Ups are HERE!
Woohoo!! This resource has been on my mind for over a year and I finally get to share it with you. Why did it take me so darn long to make it, you ask? I wanted this to be PERFECT and wanted to give teachers all sorts of options with it. I think you’re going to like what I came up with! Take a look!
Last year, I noticed that my students needed more “drill” when it came to phonics sounds and reading. I tried several games that worked but weren’t as effective as I wanted them to be. I needed something that each child could have in front of them and could follow on his/her own instead of at the front of the class. With these reading warm-ups, students can now follow on their own page and can easily take it home for extra practice.
These fluency pages can be used in several different ways. Students can practice this independently during morning tubs or you can lead the class. When leading, call out an animal (or picture) and students will read the line that you have selected. This will keep them on their toes and will avoid kids memorizing the pages after several readings.
Phonics sounds included in this resource may not match your curriculum.
Not all districts/schools/teachers teach phonics sounds in the same way. That’s okay. Our end goal is all the same: we want our students to learn to read. If any of these pages don’t work for you (ex: you may not teach the sounds dge and tch with digraphs), I have included EDITABLE PAGES so that you can easily create your own.Are you looking to save paper and make this a DIGITAL activity for iPads/tablets? No problem!
In the zip file, you will find a file named “PhonicsSounds_Paperless”. Instructions are included to help you find the best way to share the file with your students’ devices. Once you have shared the file with your students, they can read the pages in any free PDF reader app!
