Third Grade03rd Grade Fluency FolderDear Parent(s),We have created this Fluency Folder to help your child develop effective reading skills. Your childwill need and use this folder throughout the school year. Please keep this folder safe. It will be yourresponsibility to keep this folder intact. It will not be replaced. This folder will need to be brought toschool and taken home on a daily basis. Below is a list of ways we will use this reading folder:1. Sight Words: These lists contain words 600 to 1,000 from the Fry Instant Word Lists(1980).The students will be required to know how to read the words on each set. The dailypractice is designed to help the students build reading fluency. The students will be testedweekly for mastery. Mastery is being able to read each word in a second (see it, say it). Thestudent will move on to the next set when at least 75% (20 words) has been mastered. Whenthe child moves into the next set please continue to review any words that have not beenmastered from the previous sets. This is part of the daily homework. Please help your child toachieve this goal. These words may be written on sentence strips to be practiced at home.2. Sight Word Phrases: In addition to Sight Word Lists, there are Sight Word Phrases. Pleasefollow the directions indicated for Sight Word Lists. As with the Sight Word List, pleaseremember that the student will move on to the next set when at least 75% (20 phrases) has beenmastered. When the child moves into the next set please continue to review any phrases thathave not been mastered from the previous sets. These phrases contain the word from 600 to1,000 Fry Instant Word List (1980). Repeated reading of a few phrases per week givesstudents practice reading high-frequency words and developing fluency and generalproficiency. These phrases may be written on sentence strips to be practiced at home.3. Reading Passages: The same story will be read 3 times per evening, Monday-Thursday forhomework. Your child’s Homework Log will indicate which story is to be read each week.a. Your child will read the 1st time to build accuracy. It should be timed for 1minute. Count the number of words read correctly and record the words perminute (wpm) in the Home Practice section.b. Your child will read the story a 2nd time to practice using punctuation whenreading and to develop expression.c. Your child will read the story a 3rd time to develop comprehension.d. In addition to fluency practice, your child will answer one to two questionsper night from the passage. This will help to enhance comprehension andvocabulary development.We have found these reading folders to be very effective in developing reading skills.

It took me five trips, but I got them all taken back tothe store.The man in the apartment downstairs said I could walk hisdog after supper every night for two weeks. Our neighbor ladysaid she could use some help putting out the trash and getting ridof old newspapers. One lady in our building said she would likesome help with her groceries, but she couldn’t afford to pay me.I helped her anyway. She said she would give me some flowersto give to my stepmother.The day before her birthday I asked Mom if she would go ona date with me for dinner. She was surprised when I paid for thedinner with the money I had earned. She made me tell her whereI had gotten the money. Then she gave me a big hug and said itwas the best birthday present ever.
