Hi Sister11....

Here's the breakdown for first grade to fifth grade reading fluency:

First grade: 60 words per minute
Second grade: 90 words per minute
Third grade: 120 words per minute
Fourth grade: 135 words per minute
Fifth grade: 150 words per minute

There are several charts or standards but this is pretty much the average.  Below is a link for your reference.

Hope this helps!
