One of my favorite components of my classroom is my fluency station. It’s the first thing I recommend to teachers that I consult with. It’s relatively easy to setup, simple to train a paraprofessional to run, and gives a constant stream of data. Sold? You should be. I have loads of posts about fluency so let’s do a round up!

Other Tips & Tricks:

Use a color coded bins for correct & incorrect flashcards.




Use a clicker to keep track of nonverbal fluency programs.


Challenge your kids! Keep advancing the programs. We just added reading price tags and fractions {great functional tasks} to some students’ fluency programs.


If you want the heavy lifting down for you (ie. having loads of flashcards and data sheets ready to roll at your finger tips). Check out our Fluency Mega Pack! Happy flashcarding 🙂
