READING opens the door to everything that we learn and know. It can be something that is purposeful for gaining knowledge, but more than anything it should be FUN!Kids Who Read, Succeed!What is reading fluency?
Fluency is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. In order for students to understand what they read, they most often need to be able to read fluently whether they are reading aloud or silently. When reading aloud, fluent readers read in phrases and add intonation appropriately. Their reading is smooth and has expression.
Students may have difficulty with decoding skills or they may just need more practice with speed and smoothness in reading. Fluency is also important for motivation; children who find reading laborious tend not to want read! As readers head into upper elementary grades, fluency becomes increasingly important. Students who find fluency a challenge may not experience the full joy of reading.(Resource - Readingrockets.org)Alligator Lake SailedFish One Day Weed & RoadGoat Awoke SpeedboatSwift Breeze Wind HawksOyster Living Fossils CatsFor Parents and Teachers:
