Alternative Fluency Strategy


Do you have students who struggle with timed fluency tests? I started using this alternative fluency strategy and it really helped my anxious kiddos succeed!


In this video I explain how I use backward timing to alleviate the pressure from the timer and how my struggling students improved their fluency. I also give examples of how this strategy can be used in both math and reading.


Click {here} to download an editable freebie you for your students can use to track fluency improvement over time. You will need to save it to your computer before you can edit it. You can enter your own times along the left side as well as the information at the top.





Or if you prefer a Google Drive version, you can click {here}. All you need to do is after you open the document, make a copy for your own Google Drive. Now you can type in the text boxes your own information and add text boxes where needed. Honestly, though, I prefer to print off the graph and let my students color in their progress :)

You can also click {here} to read a detailed blog post I wrote about using this strategy to improve math fluency.
