In Tennessee, the second grade assessment will include a fluency section aligned to Tennessee standard 2.RF.4.a: (RF) Reading Foundational Skills. To help 2nd grade teachers, I have created several practice assessments as well as shared some much-needed information below.
Practice: Click here or on the picture to download the practice fluency set.
Read aloud directions for teachers: “Here are 20 sentences. Read each sentence and ask yourself: Is this sentence true? Mark YES or NO to answer the question for each sentence. Do not start until I say “Go.” Do as many as you can before I say “Stop.”
Testing Format for TN 2nd Grade Fluency Section Assessment: Students will have a set of twenty sentences in their test booklets, varying in length from four to eight words (four each with four, five, six, seven, and eight words per sentence). Each sentence includes words that are at or below the second grade reading level. Each sentence is structured to present a statement that is easily recognizable as true or not true. Students will have one minute to read the sentences and mark YES or NO as directed
