Build reading fluency in upper elementary with this HUGE (discounted) bundle of 128 Fluency Task Cards. This bundle is a sequel to the original Reading Fluency Bundle and addresses four new ways to practice oral reading fluency. Perfect small group, whole group, or independent center fluency activity.

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! These texts are not decodables and should be used with upper elementary students, specifically working on fluency. These texts have many multisyllabic words, affixes, complex sentences, and more.

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!

Digital Version Note: Please note that the digital version contains each card on its own slide. These are not editable or interactive, but are meant to be assigned to students to practice their oral reading fluency at home.
