Fluency is a reading skill that requires practice and careful monitoring. Students in Mrs. Brown's classroom are simultaneously doing a fluency pulse. They record themselves reading at their independent reading level, critique themselves, re-record to fix errors if needed and then send the recording off to Mrs. Brown for feedback. Students appreciate the opportunity to redo the reading pulse and enjoy getting timely feedback. In order for students to move up to the next reading level they must be fluent in the current reading level. It's quick, efficient, and authentic progress monitoring.
