Foster Avid Readers with the Fluency Tutor Share Extension

Over the last year we’ve introduced dozens of updates (both small and large) to Fluency Tutor for Google to help students and teachers get the most out of the friendly Chrome app. This includes things like comprehension questions, data exporting, more reading levels, easier ways to purchase, and more. All designed to develop reading fluency online.

If you’ve used Fluency Tutor before, you probably know that it comes with nearly 500 reading passages out of the box. All free and sortable by Lexile level or reading age. In addition, there are student and teacher share extensions that allow you to create a Fluency Tutor passage from any Google Doc or web page. 

Not familiar with the share extensions? Keep reading to learn more!


The Fluency Tutor Student Share Extension allows students to create and record their own reading passages from almost anything on the web. Students can select content that interests them most. This helps to foster independent and avid reading, and increases interest and engagement by giving students that ability to choose what they read!



There’s also a Teacher version of the extension, which allows teachers to create reading passages from the web or Google Docs.



If you haven’t given the share extension a try yet, now’s the time to check it out. These extensions have been part of an extended free offering that will be coming to an end this year. 

But it’s not all bad news! 

Anyone who has already installed Fluency Tutor for Google will get continued access to the share extensions free.

And if you’re not yet a Fluency Tutor user, now’s the time to sign up because all users who sign up before December 31st will have continued access to the share extensions in the free version of Fluency Tutor for Google. 

If you’ve found this post after December 31, 2016, the share extensions are still available as part of your free trial so you will have 30 days to check them out. Give them a try and let us know how it goes. 

If you need more time you can always invite another teacher to try Fluency Tutor and get another 30 days of free premium access.
