F LUENCY What is fluency? The most basic definition of fluency is accurately and quickly. What does this mean for my child? *Children should be able to name letters quickly and accurately by the end of Kindergarten. *Children should also be able to add and subtract fluently within five by the end of Kindergarten. What's with the charts? Graphing fluency makes your children responsible and aware of their progress!
