It is challenging to find time to adequately address our students' fluency needs once they reach middle school. Therefore, I used the technology in PowerPoint to create an independent practice that I use with my students.
Within this program, students have the option of listening to a story before the fluency work begins. Then they must read the words before they disappear off of the screen. The students select either the red speed (slow), medium speed (yellow), or fast speed (green). They are sure to improve upon their reading fluency and comprehension with this program!
This third installment uses the story of Rapunzel. I chose this fairy tale for a couple of reasons:
1.Students need to be able to understand allusions made in other literary works, and many of those allusions come from fairy tales. The different installments of this program will help them become familiar with the fairy tales.
2. The reading level is at 6.1. This makes it just the right level to help students with their fluency, as reading passages used in fluency work shouldn’t be too complicated.
This is a simplified version of the fluency work that is integrated into my Test Prep and Interactive PowerPoint Bundle Installment #3
