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.
