I have developed a weekly fluency routine that I use successfully with my ESOL students. Check out the PREVIEW file for the actual Day 1 directions, the student progress monitoring chart, and a sample of the punctuation fluency cards.
Included in this packet are:
*2 blank student progress monitoring charts (1 with increments of 5 filled in, and one where you can create your own increments based on student goals)
*Step by Step Routine Directions for Days 1-5
* 4 sheets (8 total cards) of punctuation fluency practice.
Day 1- I give them a new passage, they decipher the passage independently, identifying new and unfamiliar words. Then work with a partner to decode and read the passage fluently. As the teacher, I then help students who even through the help of a partner were unable to decode words. Students read the passage timed for a minute and graph it on their progress monitoring chart.
Day 2-5 students practice rereading the passage with partners and graph their results daily on the progress monitoring chart.
Students are responsible for shading/coloring their own data. Students love to visually see their wrc (words read correctly) increase and their errors decrease through repeated reading.
By using this routine and allowing the students to be responsible for their own data charting, some of my really struggling students are finally seeing why I repeatedly tell them to read it again! :)
Students keep their weekly fluency charts in a folder to be able to go back and look at their progress throughout the unit, quarter, semester, and year!
Hopefully you will find this product as helpful as I have! -Jeannette
