Fluency Friends- Friday Group

Have you ever met Blazer Fresh on Go Noodle? This group is one of my favorites; I think they do an excellent job reminding us to read fluently, check it out: Blazer Fresh: Don't Read Like A Robot

I suggest you watch this video a second or third time so you can dance and sing along!


You should have finished your comprehension questions for the story you worked on last week.  If you have, please count how many words are in your retelling and record that number on the bottom right hand corner of the page. (If you did not finish your comprehension work, do this today!)

Read your story to warm up.  Are you ready to be timed? If not, practice reading again until you feel prepared for a smooth reading.

Ask someone at home to listen to you read.  Have them grab some scrap paper and a timer.  As you read, they should tally any mistakes you make for one minute.  When one minute is up, have them mark where you finished reading.  Count how many words you read in one minute.  Subtract the number of errors made and you will have the number of words you read correctly in one minute.  This should be recorded at the bottom of the page. Email me to let me know how many words you read correctly per minute and I will assign your next learning task!



Your audio files for your story are posted in our Fluency Friends Google Classroom.
