First Grade Phonics Pattern Fluency/Automaticity Drills

I wanted to let first grade teachers know that I posted some new resources on Share point today. These are word cards that go along with the phonics skills from each lesson. They could be copied, cut apart and used for the students to develop automaticity with the words after accuracy has been built.

You can find these in the Harcourt Resources section in either the Phonics/Workmat folder or the Fluency folder. You might even consider putting these in “Just Right” bags as a “have to” choice for independent or even partner reading. Some teachers may even want to send these home for extra practice. Let me know how these are working for your students!

My name is Tara Baldwin, and I am the Elementary Program Area Specialist for the Shelby County School System. I have been in education for 28+ years. I have a Bachelors degree from Jacksonville State University in Early Childhood Education and a Masters degree from the University of Montevallo in Early Childhood Education and Educational Administration. Prior to beginning my current position I served as the reading coach at Valley Elementary School in Shelby County. I also have teaching experience in kindergarten, first and second grades.
