Sight Word Sentence Trees

Fluency is such an important aspect of reading, but it’s often something that we only think of working on with our highest readers.  I am constantly trying to think of ways to work on fluency even with my beginning readers.
These Sight Word Sentence Trees will be a perfect way for my students to work on sight words AND fluency.
The cards come in both a color version and a black and white version.  I printed the black and white version onto colored paper to make them more eye catching for my students.
These cards will be laminated and placed on a metal ring.  Early finishers will be able to grab these to practice.  I can also throw these into a center for independent practice.  These Sight Word Sentence Trees will also be perfect if I have a parent volunteer that can work with students.
I love that once I prep a couple sets of these for my class, they can provide practice for my students for the rest of the year.

  1. Fluency is something I expect from my lowest readers from day one. I am a reading recovery teacher working with the bottom 20 percent of readers in a classroom. I was really shocked by your opening statement.

    1. I completely agree with you that fluency is an important aspect of reading right from the beginning. What I meant from my statement was that often times the focus is only on phonemic awareness and phonics instruction at first, but we ABSOLUTELY can work on fluency skills with students right from the beginning. I'm sorry if it did not come across that way.

  2. Hi Jodi,
