writing fluency

Writing fluency goals

  • I had to tweak the standards a lot to make these goals. I have included two different goals for each standard– one is an easy to measure (time writing) goal and the other is slightly closer to the standards.
  • 3rd grade standard: Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.3.10
  • 3rd grade goal 1: ______________ will write routinely over shorter time frames as demonstrated by showing writing fluency of at least 15 words per minute on a timed assessment and as measured by teacher observations and records.  CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.3.10
  • 3rd grade goal 2: _________ will write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences as demonstrated by writing at least three sentences (20 words or more) during at least three of four classroom writing activities in a week CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.3.10
  • 4th grade standard: Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.10
