Precisely leveled texts allow you to differentiate with ease!

Each level of Flow Reading FluencyTM contains a specific range of leveled passages. There are 24 high-interest, nonfiction passages in each level. All of the passages have certified Lexile® measures, so you can perfectly match them to your readers. The passage Lexile® measures increase in increments of 10, which allows you to expertly scaffold the program by increasing text complexity at a developmentally appropriate pace. There are two to three passages within the same Lexile® measure.

High-interest passages that are specifically written for reading fluency

Each passage is carefully written and formatted for reading fluency. The texts include interrogative and exclamatory sentences so students can practice intonation changes. Italicized words also provide opportunities for students to improve prosody.

Comprehension questions cover a variety of skills*.

Each passage comes with a set of comprehension questions. The questions are carefully written to cover a variety of skills: determining the main idea, attending to details, using context clues, making inferences, and finding connections within various relationships.

*Comprehension pages are slightly different for levels 1-4

Progress monitoring that actively involves and intrinsically motivates students

Students graph their performance for each passage they complete. This provides students with at-a-glance feedback on their progress as they move through the program. Students are genuinely motivated to “beat” their cold score and track their comprehension.

Assisted reading video files for all 240 passages

Each passage comes with an assisted reading video file. Students can follow along as they listen to an audio version of a passage. The words are highlighted as they are read aloud. These assisted reading files are critical for developing prosody.
