The common core lists fluency as an important skill. Second graders will continue to increase in fluency as they begin to read 3 grade level texts. This app is a comprehensive look at all aspects of fluency, including accuracy, smoothness, expression and automaticity. BugbrainED has a record for providing assisted educational apps that help children achieve grade level. Parents may use this app for a child who needs to catch up with his/her peers. Teachers can easily integrate this into lesson plans.
All of BugbrainED’s apps are based on the common core. The standard in fluency is as follows:
Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
a. Read on-level text with purpose and understanding.
b. Read on-level text orally with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression on successive readings.
c. Use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition and understanding, rereading as necessary.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is not what I expected. I thought it was going to help my child practice fluency but all it does is help you understand what fluency is and how a fluent reader should sound. Waste of $2!
Kids see fluency is not just reading fast
Don't waste your dollar!
Well that's $.99 down the toilet! After one review of "EARS" and a CHECK YOURSELF you're done. There is nothing more to this app and no further lessons or teaching of any sort. What a waste!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
