Cold reads and hot reads are super important for reading fluency practice and progress monitoring. Use these cold and hot reads charts to monitor reading fluency progress.
Research has proven that repeated readings of familiar texts increases students' oral reading fluency. Use these charts to help improve reading fluency and show the students their progress.
1. Time a student reading aloud a new text for one minute. Count the number of words read correctly. Using a blue crayon, marker, or colored pencil, chart this number as the “Cold Read.”
2. Allow the student to practice re-reading the text.
3. Time the student re-reading the text for one minute. Count the number of words read correctly. Using a red crayon, marker, or colored pencil, chart this number as the “Hot Read.”
Available in color and black and white for copying ease.
