See What Other Teachers Are Saying About This 1st - 2nd Grade Reading Fluency Resource!

These were really good for progress monitoring fluency for my kids.  I loved that it had suggestions on repeated readings, things for them to find, and it had places for them to reflect on their initial cold read and the effects of their repeated readings.  It was such a powerful resource so they could see their own growth.

⭐ I was a bit unsure about this purchase.  I liked the idea but was unsure how it would work in the classroom.  I used it today during guided reading.  IT WAS A HUGE HIT.  The kids loved it and it gave me a different way to monitor their progress.  I have a multi-age classroom.  My older students who are in RTI loved it as well.  I highly recommend this product for first grade and intervention groups for older students.

⭐ Amazing ... one of the best things I have purchased.  It helps improve fluency, and they can do it with a partner.
