    I just started a fluency program that is working great! Each week 1/2 of the class are readers and the other half are listeners. I choose books that are 1 level below their instructional reading level.
    Day 1 - They use a "phone" (pvc pipe phone) to read the book aloud to themselves. Usually this is during our SSR time.
    Day 2 -- They read their book out loud to a listener. (again during SSR time)
    Day 3 -- They read out loud to a different listener
    Day 4 -- They read out loud to an assistant or me.
    Day 5 -- They read out loud to an adult. I recruited our principal, assistant principal, literacy coordinator and speech teacher. They each listen to 3 children and write a couple of notes for me about their fluency.

    They read the same book all week. They are always asking me to read their "book" when they have free time. Also, these are normally picture books. If it is a longer picture book they only read 5 pages to the adult on Friday so it doesn't take up too much time. Then the next week the listeners become readers and the readers become listeners, so each child gets a turn. The reports that have come back from the adult listeners has been great! Hope this makes sense! Good luck.
