Building Automaticity in Reading

Fluency in all subject areas is important whether it's in writing, reading or math. Kids need the constant practice to build automaticity and vocabulary especially with second language learners. My students practice reading fluency daily using these passages with one minute sand timers. They absolutely love going to this literacy center. I put the reading passages in sheet protectors, print and laminate 7 title pages in color and put in three prong folders. Next month I will place the October (Halloween theme) passages!
