Just having students reread a passage over and over again is sooooo boring for kids.
A couple of weeks ago, I made this 5 Step Fluency packet.
I loved it so much that I made a 5 StepFluency for Beginning Readers and a 5 Step Fluency for Advanced Readers packet.
These packets are such a fun way for students to practice their fluency skills. They love to be able to reread the passages in their special voices.
Since it's such a fun activity, I had a chance today to sit down and make these Fluency Voice Sticks.
The students pull a stick out of the container to see which voice they will be using to reread. These can be used with any passage or book. Fluency Voice Sticks can be used in a whole group or small group setting. They would also work well for an independent reading center.
I made these into Fluency Voice Cards
as well. These give you another option
of hooking the cards to a metal ring, or allowing the students to just pull a
card from a box to see what voice they will use.
I also thought it would be fun to make some Fluency Voice Spinners. The students spin a voice to see how to reread their passage or story.
What are your favorite ways to practice fluency?
