Through 4 months, all students increased their ORF (Oral Reading Fluency), an average of 28.5 WPM (words per minute).
My fourth graders and I love Lyrics2Learn! They love the beat and the rhythm, and I love that they're excited about working on their fluency... It's a welcome change from the monotony of repeated reading. Many of the other fluency programs we've tried lack this quality comprehension component.
100% of my kids made benchmark, and over 60% of them doubled it when I used Lyrics2learn as a reading center every week.
Last week, I entered my team member's classroom to find every student in the class actively engaged in reading! I was stunned but really excited about the most powerful educational tool I've seen in a long time.
This program is absolutely wonderful. At the beginning of the year when reviewing their testing scores from the previous year I had 4 students who passed the reading portion of the test with only 4-5 making growth. I was hopeful that they would make growth using this program and I was definitely not disappointed. 18 out of my 19 students made growth in the double digits and 10 of them passed the end of the year test. One of them who passed was a student who had an IEP for reading!
I have nothing but the best things to say about L2L! The comprehension level of my students soared using this program 15 minutes per day before beginning my language lessons. I intend to use it again this year with my 2nd graders!
