FLYING FISH the exercise. How Students Advance in Flying Fish Flying Fish presents progressively lower-frequency words, requiring that the student master each word in 2 stages. The words are presented in groups of 10. In Stage 1, the student matches a word that is written and spoken with other words that are written and spoken. ➤ If the student matches 9 out of the 10 words correctly (90% accuracy), the student advances to Stage 2. ➤ If the student does not match 9 out of 10 words correctly, the set of words is repeated for the current stage. The student is given 3 attempts to pass the set of words and advance to Stage 2. In Stage 2, the student works on the same set of words that were presented in Stage 1, but is now required to match spoken words with written words. ➤ If the student matches 9 of the 10 words correctly in Stage 2, the next set of words is presented. The student is given 3 attempts to pass this stage. ➤ After the student meets the criteria for both stages of 4 sets of words, a Fluency Round is presented. ➤ Fluency Round: In the Fluency Round, words from the previous 4 sets are presented as in Stage 2 and at the fastest rate.
