Assigning Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) activities in Imagine Language & Literacy


Fluent Reader activities within Imagine Language & Literacy deliver timed, one-minute fluency assessments to your students throughout the year to help you assess your students' Oral Reading Fluency (ORF). The contextualized fluency activities are automatically assigned to students as part of their learning sequence. These system-assigned activities reflect the themes, characters, and content of the book lessons from which the activity is launched. These activities can also be assigned or reassigned manually as desired.

In addition, there are 36 "cold" fluency activities that are not dependent on an accompanying book for context. These activities can be assigned to students throughout the year, at will.
