What are Fluency Grids?
Fluency grids are a field-tested tool that help reinforce the names of letters, the sounds of letters, or both. They can be used with the whole class using a document camera. Fluency grids can be implemented in the intervention setting when working with a small group of students or one-on-one. They are aligned with the CCSS Reading Foundational Skills standards.
Why are they important?
The ability to automatically name letters and produce the sound of each letter is the foundation of the alphabetic principle. Emergent readers benefit from repeated exposure and practice identifying letters and sounds to reach the point of automaticity.
Students who struggle to identify letters or remember the sounds benefit from targeted instruction. Fluency grids provide this targeted instruction.
Some letters are more difficult to learn because they are visually similar. Informed Literacy fluency grids include a variety of combinations contrasting commonly confused letters. In addition, this product also offers several editable versions so teachers can create fluency grids targeting the needs of their own students.
