Repeated Reading Chart...freebie :)

I just made a repeated reading chart to track my students' oral reading rate.  (Download here:
repeated reading chart) I won't use this strategy for my students way below grade level or way above grade level, but it's a great strategy to use to build fluency for the rest of the kiddos. If you haven't done repeated readings before, here's how it works:

1. Choose a text at the student's high instructional level (close to independent so the student isn't focused too much on decoding).

2. Time the first read through, graph it. Go over errors. Tell student to practice reading the book during independent reading time (or at home).

3. The next day, or in two days, reread the same story. Time it, graph it, go over errors.

4. Repeat this as necessary. Once there are no errors and the reading rate is acceptable, choose a harder text and repeat the steps!

There is a great book that we use in my district called "6 Minute Solution" which is wonderful for this! It has passages at several levels so you can differentiate. Just thought I'd share just in case you were interested! :)
