As a third grade teacher for many years, i became frustrated when students came to me without being about the read fluently. I knew that if they did not have fluency they did not have comprehension. The activities if this folder was one of the ways that I work with students to increase their fluency. This folder contains thirty fluency pryamid activities. I have used these in my classroom with individual students, whole groups, and small groups. When using the activities with individual students I required that the student be able to read the pryamid to me with no mistakes before he/she could advance to the next pryamid. Make sure that the students have a blank card so the he/she can cover up the pyramid and exposed one line at a time as they progress down the pyramid.
