Use these 40 fluency task cards to help your students with their oral reading. Each card features an entertaining short passage for students to read out loud. The cards were written with varying sentence types and lengths, figurative language, and plenty of punctuation. The cards are split evenly between dialogue and narrative text. All of the odd-numbered cards feature a dialogue between two people. The even-numbered cards are written in a paragraph format.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
