Some teachers/kids are struggling on the fluency Practice. Some of those time tests are rigorous and some of our kids give up with frustration. Would you advise going back to basic facts fluency or trudging forward as the program indicates?

When students struggle with the nature of those fluencies being timed, then don't use time. Extend the time for students to do those fluency practices. Minimize the emphasis on speed. To asses fluency, the teacher can simply observe students as they do the work. It is visibly obvious who is fluent and who isn't. No need for a timer to do this.
