Super Hero Fluency Cards

We have had many questions about our "Superhero Fluency Cards" that we use in our "Book Buckets."  So we thought we would share with you! 

We have an important role as an educator to build confidence in our students when they are learning to read.  After-all, fluency is an important component of reading instruction, and it starts in Kindergarten!  
Repeated reading has proven to be one of the best strategies for developing reading fluency.  Many times, due to time constraints, educators cannot “fit in” as many fluency activities as they would like to during their day. This is where our Superhero Fluency Unit will help support you!
These are the "Book Buckets" that we use in our classroom.
Soon there will also be leveled reading books to read too! 
When do we use the “Superhero Fluency” Unit?  Well, first of all, we place the cards on a ring and store them in each students' book box.  Then the possibilities are endless, but here are just a few ways we have used them over the years. This unit can be utilized during...
Read To Self Time
Rest & Read Time
Quiet Time
A classroom volunteer's visit 
These are some of the reading tools that we add into the "Book Buckets."  We like to encourage our students to point to the words when they are reading.  The students LOVE to read to the principal and the president!  Pointers make EVERYTHING more FUN!!
Fluency cards include...Uppercase Letters, Lowercase Letters, Numbers 1 - 10, Numbers 1 - 20, Colors, Color Words, Shapes, Number Words, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Digraphs, Count by 2's, Count by 5's, Count by 10's.
We want to GIVE IT AWAY to a lucky teacher!
