4 New Weeks of Decoding Fluency - Spiral Warmups

4 New Weeks of Decoding Fluency

Decoding Fluency Warm-Ups from Spiral WarmUps

We just released four more weeks of free research-based word study warm-ups! These warm-ups are available to all of our Spiral WarmUps members including the free word study membership.

The new warm-ups are based on feedback from two years of testing and trails. They feature a newly designed navigation menu that brings all of the warm-ups in one location for quick, no-prep delivery of engaging instruction!

These are 4 of the many weeks of new free word study upgrades!

Questions About the New Warm-Ups

Who are the Free Word Study Warm-Ups for?

The warm-ups are designed for grades 2-3 on-level readers, grades 3-5 intervention or remediation, and English language learners.

In Give It A Shot, students practice their reading fluency in timed attempts with immediate feedback.

Are these warm-ups good for English Learners?

Yes. The level of words and types of tasks are perfect for students at level 3 (speech emergence) and level 4 (intermediate fluency) of second language acquisition.

What skills are in the new Decoding Fluency Warm-Ups?

These 20 days of warm-ups focus solely on consonant blends. Students will practice a variety of skills seeing, hearing, reading, and writing words with initial, medial, and final 2- and 3-letter blends.

Students will test their word decoding skills in these timed warm-ups!

What happens to the old Decoding Fluency Warm-Ups?

These warm-ups replace the first version of Decoding Fluency warm-ups, but those legacy warm-ups are still available in the Awesome members’ dashboards.
