Reading. Writing. Thinking. Sharing.

What is a Fluency Boot Camp? No… you will not be shipping your students off (sorry), nor will students have to march around the room (your choice), but I can guarantee that your students’ brains will be sweating as they participate in the classroom fluency camp you create! Just like any boot camp, students will build confidence through practice and drills. You can organize it for just one day, or you can set it up to last a full-week or month! Keep in mind, after just one day, students will start melting-away their non-fluent reading habits… and by the end of the week or month, students will be on their way to becoming confident, fluent readers! Are you sold on the idea yet? How to Organize Your Fluency Boot Camp Fluency Boot Camp can be modified and customized for pretty much any grade-level and classroom situation.
