You already receive more than 25% off your purchase today (4 lessons), and any new lessons added is just a bonus. These lessons are comprehensive and applicable for any classroom 3rd-6th. Each lesson is designed to launch good reading practices that lay the ground work for active reading.
Here’s what you get in this bundle of four lessons (currently):

What Fluent Readers Do
This ready-to-go lesson is designed to assist launching good reading fluency practices and cultivate thoughtful readers.

The fluency folders will be used throughout the year to house poems and passages students can continue to practice during fluency center. Fluency notes can be kept in this folder as well and be revisited throughout the year to help set individual reading fluency goals.
