Fluency is often forgotten but essential component to overall reading comprehension—even in middle school. The problem is there are only a handful of fluency passages written for this age. UNTIL NOW! These twenty passages, which include a line by line word count are perfect for the reluctant and well, gross middle schooler reader. Focusing on topics such as nose picking, ear wax and already been chewed gum (just to name a few) these short passages are perfect for practicing fluency. Each leveled passage, written with advanced vocabulary, also includes space to calculate an accuracy score, fluency rate and prosody notes.
