Fluency Timer Pro App- Intervention and Enrichment

Fluency Timer is an adjustable timer that automatically records students' fluency readings for playback and sharing. Just press record and the app will automatically stop at the end of one minute (or whatever time you select). It's simple enough for even students to use it. At the end of the recording, name your file and play it back or delete it from the built in library. 

My second graders use the Fluency Timer Pro App on our 30 iPod Touches along with the QuickReads Program. 
What is QuickReads?

QuickReads is a research-based and classroom-validated program that systematically increases fluency, builds vocabulary and background knowledge, and improves comprehension. Through a unique combination of text and consistent instructional routine, QuickReads results in improved reading proficiency for students at all ability levels.

I borrowed several different sets of books from our Title I Reading teacher. One set I use as intervention for students who are struggling with fluency. A different set I use for enrichment to challenge students who need harder material. 
(I am lucky that I work with great people who share!)
I highly recommend this APP! 
It's ONLY 99cents!
The best part about this app is that students can email the recordings and you can listen to them when you have time! You can also forward the recordings to parents!
