Reading Fluency Passages

Good Morning Everyone -

I'm a Reading Literacy teacher for my school. I'm looking for more 1st grade and 2nd grade reading passages to work on fluency. What are some great resources to find them?

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but both The Texas website and the (fcrr ) Florida site below have a wealth of practice. I wasn't sure if you only wanted fluency passages in the paragraph form or if you were looking for different variations of fluency practice. I find that phrase practice and repeated phrases in pyramid form help also.

. . . This website has endless possibilities.. . .

Hope these help

I never taught at the first or second grade level. My experience is with third and fourth grade.

But in general I used picture books at grade level and had students practice reading the book over and over before reading to me for a fluency grade. When students practiced I walked around and listened for a few seconds and made helpful suggestions. I spent more time with students who needed more help. If they heard me read a page or two that always helped. Then the next day I would read another page or two to them. Model, model and model some more. Then we often took the books to share with our kinder buddies and my students received more practice reading fluently.

I also used grade level poetry for fluency practice. The rhythm really helps some students to read more fluently. Again they practiced for several days, usually a week and then they read me their poem for a fluency grade.

Years ago I found this rubric for grading fluency exercises. Maybe it will be helpful to you as well.

We use passages from DIBELS: https://dibels.uoregon.edu/assessmen...asures/orf.php

Some teachers use these passages for classrooms assessments, though, so I'd check to make sure they weren't being used in another context.

Thank you so much for these suggestions. Our school used AimsWeb for classroom monitoring and in Reading Corps for progress monitoring we use Fast Bridge.

We subscribe to Reading A-Z, which includes a helpful collection of leveled fluency passages.

Also, Readworks.org is free. These passages are well-organized. I often copy and paste text from Readworks into an online fluency generator (also free) which will set the passage up with word count numbered and area to record Words Correct Per Minute. There's a fluency generator on the intervention central website, or just Google it.
