Does your school use the Dibel’s test? After giving the Dibels, I found that I needed to strengthen my students’ fluency skills. My schedule already seemed completely full. Where would I find more time to give my students practice reading so they could become more fluent readers?
One thing I found that helped with their fluency skills was making fluency centers one of my standard centers. I knew I wanted this center to have the same format each week so I wouldn’t have to explain the direction. This saves me valuable class time. Plus, the center had to work with students on a wide variety of reading levels.
The answer was my Sentence Shuffle Centers which I have for reading levels K-5. To honor our mothers, my Mother’s Day Sentence Shuffle Center is FREE.
I also have a Fluency Check Center that is FREE, too
