Science of Reading: The science of reading recommends explicit fluency practice with connected texts in the upper grades. These fluency task cards are perfect for this!
Why are these task cards so great?
I have found that there are many resources available to practice fluency with long passages. I began creating the original fluency task cards to give students manageable oral reading fluency practice. My students have done so well with them that I just keep creating more for their specific needs!
How can I use these reading fluency task cards in my upper elementary 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 happened to have a parent volunteer monitoring this center on that particular day). 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!
