Fluency Folders

Fluency is so critical to success in school and in life.  Fluency Folders can be used to involve parents in fluency practice nightly or once a week. (I prefer to send it home on Thursdays once we have practiced our passage Monday through Thursday at school.)  I put together a resource for my own classroom, but I hope that you will find it useful in your own classrooms!  Click HERE to download!

  1. I love the fluency folders. Does this go home with every child and do you send home the weekly story for them to read?

  2. Thank you! Yes, this goes home with each kiddo! I send home the passage/poem that we work on for the week for the Lucky Listener to hear. :)

  3. Awesome idea! I have just started poetry notebooks in my classroom and plan on using those poems for fluency at home as well. I like your idea of sending it home later in the week, after they have practiced it a few times. When do you ask for the "Lucky Listener List" back, then?

  6. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

  10. Indeed, fluency in speaking a language, like English, will greatly improve one’s future. This will not only help one be able to communicate well his or her thoughts but will certainly help him or her land a job. These Fluency folders you have shared are absolutely amazing and very useful thank you for posting. If all teachers use this or other similar tools as part of their teaching strategies, then kids will certainly be able to improve their speaking skills.
