Reading fluency is the ability to read with accuracy, expression, comprehension and appropriate rate. These are the four areas of fluency we’ll be focusing on this year.
Accuracy: the correct pronunciation of words
Expression: reading in larger phrase chunks and conveying a mood or feeling through changing voice tone- pauses and pitch variations
Comprehension: understanding the author’s intended meaningAppropriate Rate: speed at which words are correctly pronounced
If you find that your child reads word-by-word rather than putting words in phrases, here are some prompts you can use to help them.
“Read it like this.”
“Read this much together.” (Cover part of the print, exposing the phrase unit such as, “…in the house…”)
“Listen to me read this part. Now read it just like I did.”“Put your words together so it sounds like talking.”
