Decoding drills for fluency are a perfect and fun way for kindergarten and first graders to practice decoding words. They help build speed and automaticity, which improves reading fluency. They also make great reading intervention activities. I love that they are differentiated and include real and nonsense words.
Are you a kindergarten or first grade teacher struggling to find activities to manage sight word instruction? This interactive sight word notebook is the perfect classroom idea for teaching reading and managing sight words. Students read words and passages multiple times daily. They master a level and move to the next! This bundle includes the pre-primer to third grade Dolch word list. (The sight word printables can be used in a notebook or used to make mini-books.)
I use decoding drills at the beginning of reading intervention blocks. Students read the words across the row. Once they are able to fluently read a page, we move on to the next | struggling reading | reading activities kindergarten | reading first grade | printable reading worksheets | teaching short vowels | sight words | reading curriculum | decoding activities | early reading activities | short vowel sounds
