How can I use these reading fluency passages in my classroom?

You can use them in a variety of ways. I had each of my students read each card three times (repeated readings) in an independent reading center. I have also had students read the cards to each other, taking turns, in an independent center. I also had a teacher use them to do a quick reading warm up, giving each student a card, and having him or her read it out loud to the entire class. You can use these 32 different times for warm ups, giving students a different card each time!

However you choose to use them, have fun!

I began creating the original fluency task cards for my students to practice their fluency of phrases and sentences. I found a lot of LONG fluency passages, and I found a lot of short sentences or phrase passages, but I wanted something different, so I created these, with various sentence structures, dialogue, punctuation, expression, etc. that students commonly find in texts.

Ideal for grades 3+
