My overall goal for some of the students I will be working with this year is reading fluency. But we will need to do some work in other areas to get us there. One of those areas is word fluency and building automaticity. Especially with multisyllabic words. With the Bruce book above, some of my students would have difficulty reading “hibernate”. I need them to learn how to break that unknown word and to be able to do that quickly and efficiently while reading. So we are going to have to get in some practice with this.

You can use these cards as a word work activity during guided reading or as a warm up activity to small groups in guided reading. They also work great for literacy centers and for reading interventions.
