Kinder and 1st grade fluency activity

   You play an important role at home when your child is learning to read.  Fluency is a component of reading instruction.  But many times due to time constraints, teachers can not incorporate as many fluency activities as they would like to their day.  This is where your help and support at home is extra important.

Click on the page below to download it.  Ask your child to read the sentences to you.  Your child will read the sentences to you three times.  You can space out the times between reading sessions or let him or her read them three times in a row.  After reading the sentences, you will rate your child's fluency at the bottom of the page.

I have more fluency lessons and ideas on my blog.  You can type "fluency" on my blog.  You will see this on the side of my blog.


This activity is aligned with these CCSS:

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I am always looking for passages or sentences for my kinders to read! It's so hard to come up with them on your own and I like to use books and practice pages because I feel students can read for speed better with those than a book. (Some people are going to hate me for saying that but it true... fluency is the ability to do something without thinking... which means fast.... I feel a good blog post coming on about that. Hehehe!) Thanks, love it!
