Second Graders' Fluency Soars with Read2Succeed!
Read2Succeed utilizes The Six Minute Solution program for our curriculum. The Six-Minute Solution builds students' reading fluency—essential for text comprehension—and is valuable as a complement to any reading curriculum or as an intervention program. This easy to implement resource quickly builds fluency through interactive, peer-to-peer repeated readings of high-interest, targeted readability passages.

The first and last sessions of the program include a pre/posttest. This assessment is administered by the volunteer to provide each students' measurment on fluency during the course of the program.
Reporting Fluecy Results
It is critical that all volunteers take a moment to report student fluency scores at the conclusion of the program. Utilizing the pre-addressed envelope in the tote bag, send the Student Log – Volunteer Record from the blue volunteer folder via interoffice mail. The front office staff can assist with interoffice mail. Another option is to submit student fluency scores via the Foundation website.
The following information will need to be supplied:
- Volunteer name and school
- Student(s) first and last name
- Beginning passage number (101), beginning date, and student’s cwpm score
- Ending passage number (101), ending date, and student’s cwpm score
- Number of weeks student(s) had a cwpm score
