Fluency is the key to reading and understanding. These worksheets were designed for students in the upper elementary/middle school grades that are still struggling with fluency. There is a handout that defines the key elements of fluency which can also be distributed to your middle school student. The Roles of a Student in a Fluency Class is a great tool to use in small group work. Even older students enjoy using the timer and playing the role of the teacher. The rest of the handouts are practice drills and record keeping materials so that you and your students can monitor progress.
