Fluency and Fitness® helps students review essential K-2 reading and math topics, while providing a movement break. Over 30,000 classrooms worldwide use Fluency and Fitness® for literacy and math blocks, brain breaks, inside recess, morning meetings, or just those few spare minutes in the day. Each Fluency and Fitness® video focuses on 1 skill and includes a variety of exercises for students to do every so often. Teachers love that they don’t have to lose instructional time to fit in a movement break. Students have so much fun, they don’t realize how much they’re learning.
Fluencyandfitness.com is the NEW and IMPROVED version of what over 30,000 teachers are already using in their classrooms. Fluency and Fitness® has been turned into videos with 2 different timers (3 sec. and 6 sec.) to allow for teachers to use this as their students either learn or master skills. No more teachers having to be by the computer to control the activity! The videos now include music and animated kids on the exercise slides. We’ve doubled the exercises to include 20 different moves and also added answers after the math facts. Another bonus of fluencyandfitness.com is that teachers get access to ALL Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade content in 1 spot. This library of videos makes it easy to differentiate learning.
The videos on fluencyandfitness.com are geared toward Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. There are some PreK and 3rd grade teachers using the site.

- A computer that runs a modern browser. Chrome or Safari are best.
- A broadband internet connection that does not block Fluency & Fitness domains or Vimeo.com. The videos are embedded on the website and you are never taken off the page, but you may want to make sure these sites are not blocked by your school. Check out the 2 FREE videos on the homepage to see if they’ll work for you.
- A big screen for all students to see (projector, whiteboard, etc,) You can also play the videos on individual devices.
Research shows that students are considered fluent when students can recognize a skill (letter, word, math fact, etc) in 3 seconds or less. We suggest using the 6 second timed videos when you are teaching and reviewing new skills, and the 3 second version when you think your students have mastered that skill. Having 2 versions gives you over 700 videos to choose from!
