As a first year teacher, I am constantly looking for new ideas, strategies, and motivators that encourage reading fluency!
These passages are great to use check students' fluency throughout the school year. Fluency is an important part of balanced literacy as it helps with comprehension. The purpose of this pack is to help students develop their fluent reading skills. The goal is not to be the fastest, but in general to become more fluent readers who read smoothly, pay attention to meaning and pause when they should.
The material is designed for 3rd graders, but can be appropriate for 2nd and 4th grade readers. The passages were designed to be used with the McGraw Hill Wonders curriculum (specifically Unit 1, Week 5 vocabulary), but can also be used for general fluency routines.
I hope you enjoy my first product! Be sure to provide feedback if you wish.
