gif_2726-Elementary-School-Design-Books-And-Apple (1)Fluency in reading refers to one’s pace and accuracy. As a student matures in his/her reading level, fluency should also increase.

Here are some approximate guidelines for fluency rates for the end of the year:

1st Grade: 70-90 CWPM

2nd Grade: 80-100 CWMP

3rd Grade: 100-120 CWPM

4th Grade: 110-130 CWPM

5th Grade: 120-140 CWPM

(CWPM- correct words per minute.) This is based on grade level texts.
