Fluency Homework

This week we are strongly focusing on how many words can your child read in one minute. WIth a guardian/parent, sibling, or aunt etc, the student will read for one minute as many words as possible( the adult sets the timer, the student reads). Our goal is for the students to read 70 WMP later increasing their words per minute to 100 words.
