I'm using this to help track my students fluency abilities this year. They are enjoying the passages and I enjoy how organized this resource is. Thanks for this!
This is exactly what I have been looking for and could ever hope for! This is easy to read, excellent organization and easy to print and go - every teacher needs this!

60 Fluency Passages for 5th-12th Grade HERE.

This product will help you progress monitor those interventions. In RTI, it's simply not enough to provide interventions to struggling readers, we must have proof, with data points, to prove that the interventions are working (or in some cases, not working). No longer can teachers recommend a student for testing based on hunches, sixth senses and 35 years of classroom experience. This product helps a teacher accomplish the task of collecting the progress monitoring data points for interventions in the reading areas of phonics, fluency and comprehension, including fluency skills listed in the Foundational Skills reading strand of the Common Core for ELA for grades 2 - 5. This packet is also ideal for interventionists, tutors or home school teachers of 1st - 5th graders or any teacher, interventionist, special education teacher, tutor or home school that works with 2nd -6th grade students reading at least one to two years below grade level.

Included in this product are the following:

A Quick Start Guide (1 page)

A Comprehensive Guide to RTI Progress Monitoring with Fluency (10 pages)

60 Fluency Passages-(aligned with the lexile system) with word count

60 (duplicate) Fluency Passages without word count

10+ Student Fluency Graphs (for students and teachers)

2 Teacher Graphs for documenting Progress Monitoring (editable)

1 Fluency Passages Grade-to-Lexile Correspondence Table

1 Terms of Use

In addition to the 60 fluency passages that I have written and created (also known as R-CBM's) I have written a 10 page comprehensive guide to understanding the role, purpose and rationale of progress monitoring as an essential and necessary component of the RTI process from my experiences of implementing RTI for the past five years, in a very easy to read and understand format. Of the four research based ways to measure comprehension; fluency timings, oral retellings, multiple-choice questions and cloze, fluency timings show the highest correlation to reading comprehension of these four ways.

These passages can also be used for homework or in your classroom at a fluency center for those students who are trying to improve or just maintain their fluency growth. These passages are my original creations. Every passage is leveled according to the lexile measurement system that has been adopted by the Common Core. If you think you need just your grade level, I would ask you to consider the range and level of readers in your class. If you have students reading above and below grade level, you will need to use passages at their instructional reading level, not their grade level. With the lexile overlap that occurs (you'll notice that on the Grade-to-Lexile Correspondence Table in the Preview) there are:

20 passages in the 1st grade range

30 passages in the 2nd grade range

30 passages in the 3rd grade range

20 passages in the 4th grade range

15 passages in the 5th grade range

This fluency product is licensed for single user/single classroom use. If other teachers at other grade levels or schools are interested in these fluency passages, please send them to my store at www.hellojenjones.com. This is my original work and I have put a lot of time, effort and energy into creating it.

Please be sure to download the preview file to get a snapshot of everything that's included in this RTI: 60 Fluency Passages for Progress Monitoring Reading Instruction and Intervention product and "Follow Me" for future RTI uploads.
