Fluency is a key component of reading comprehension, and these ready-to-use activities provide plenty of practice in both speed and comprehension. 14 short, high-interest stories will capture students' attention while they race the clock to improve their reading speed. After reading students show their comprehension through short-answer questions and cloze sentences. Turn the stories into timed reading exercises to get students to read at a faster pace! Students can read the story then record the amount of time it took them to read, or set a time limit and track how far they got. End-of-line word counts make it quick and easy to figure the number of words read. A great way to improve reading confidence as well as overall comprehension! 48 pages.
