Increase fluency rates with daily practice through homework. This chart can track 8 weeks of fluency growth. For each weekly chart, Mondays and Fridays are designated as hot and cold reads with the teacher. The rest of the week is for evening 1 minute reads with a parent.
Calculate fluency rates by setting your timer (I use my phone) to 1 minute. Place one copy in front of you and one in front of the student. Once the student begins reading the first word, start the timer. Circle any errors made (word said incorrectly, word skipped). Do not count self-corrections as errors.
When time is up, subtract errors from the total words read and you'll have the words read per minute!
