Fry Fluency Phrases #3 and a Freebie!

Do you use Fry Phrases in your classroom?  I'm currently using them with a reading intervention group and I'm loving it!

I love Fry Phrases because they take sight words and put them in a context.  I am always amazed at students who can fly through sight word assessments but miss basic words when reading a text.  Fry Phrases take those high-frequency words and put them in a context so that students have an opportunity to connect and transfer their reading skills.

We're currently working on the third set of fluency phrases, so that's the pack that I just put up on TpT and you can have one of the games for free!

The pack has assessment and graphing pages (perfect for RTI!), a "BUMP" style game for practicing the phrases, another game called "BUMMER DUDE!" which is one of my signature sayings, and directions for turning "BUMMER DUDE!" into a fun dice game!  This current pack is made for my 3rd graders who need extra support... so I'm thinking that 3rd and 4th graders would benefit the most, but I had some 2nd graders last year who would have loved the challenge!  PS- every font that I used is one that I made!  :)  Yay!
 Find it on TpT!

Anywho- you can click the image below for one of the "BUMP" style game boards.  The pack has 5 of the games, which I called "ROLL, READ, REPEAT".  If you don't know how to play "BUMP", students need 10 "markers" like Unifix cubes or BINGO chips.  Each player rolls three dice, adds to find the sum, and then reads that spot on the board.  If they are correct, they put their piece there.  If another student rolls that number, they can knock the other student off!  BUT... if a student rolls the same number twice (while their marker is still on the spot) they can put a 2nd marker on there and then the space is locked and no one can bump them off!

The winner is the player who uses all of their pieces first!

If you download the file and enjoy it... if you let me know in a comment, I'll choose one to win my whole new pack tomorrow!  :)

  6. I have heard of Fry phrases, but never used them. They look interesting and like something I should be using. I picked up your Bump game, but I'm out of paper at home. So I'll get it when I'm at school tomorrow.
    thanks!

  17. I love Fry phrases but notice most choose Dolch instead. I bought a ring of Fry phrases through Really Good Stuff and my firsties choose that ring over any other in the bin! Our Title teacher loves Fry too! I would be honored to have a chance to use your unit with my class.
    Thanks for the free game!

  19. Hi Christina, I am actually responding to your call out for apps. The first thing you need to do is download appsgonefree and smart apps for kids- they will give you a heads up on apps that are free for a limited time. I teach first grade and have gotten many apps through them. I would say the most popular apps in my room are pocket phonics, splashmath, spelling1-2and storia. I have many, many more that you can find on my pinterest site Julie abdo bales.
    Good luck!

  25. I am a huge fan of Fluency Phrases! When I was an interventionist, we would do a Rally Robin (Kagan activity) with the phrases. They would also graph how many phrases they read in a minute, and they loved to watch their graph get taller and taller :)

  29. My kids love the bump games. I never thought to use it as a reading game. Do you have any versions that would be easier (I teach first graders). If not, would you mind if I made one? I would link back to your site when sharing.
