Reading fluency is a child's ability to read a book or other text correctly, quickly, and with expression. Fluency Fluency is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. In order to understand what they read, children must 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.

Fluency Activities One of the most effective fluency activities I used with Michael was eyerobics. Reading is easier if each word is broken down into syllables – not letters. The eye needs to be trained to quickly recognize syllables. Otherwise words may look like an i-n-c-o-m-p-r-e-h-e-n-s-i-b-l-y large string of letters. (Broken into syllables that word is: in-com-pre-hen-si-bly.)

Put Reading First Fluency instruction Fluency is the ability to read a text accurately and quickly. When fluent readers read silently, they recognize words automatically. Books Read The Biggest and Brightest Light For Ages: 4-7 Read now More info Read Out Loud When he first started putting letters together into words, your child spent lots of time learning to "decode"--make sense of--text on the page. Now that second grade is here, he'll be working on a new phrase, "fluency,"--the ability to read smoothly and at a pace that promotes understanding of what is being read. Fluency, along with comprehension, is the ultimate goal for readers of all ages, but can be especially difficult to achieve at first when a young learner is just beginning to read. To help your child develop fluency, provide him with repeated opportunities to listen to good reading, and to listen to himself reading, too. In this way, he’ll develop a good sense of what fluency sounds like, and model his own reading in the same manner.

Top 10 Tips for Building Fluent Readers + Link Up! We have all heard about the shift that happens, usually between second and third grade, when students (should) go from learning to read to reading to learn. Unfortunately, for some students, their ability to read to learn is stifled by their inability to read fluently. Even for those kids who can read at an average pace, the faster and more accurately they can read and decode, the more effectively they can comprehend. When I taught third grade, and now as an interventionist, the importance of fluency is empathized more than ever (and has definitely met some critics). I know that fluency is NOT the end-all, be-all, but a lot of research proves that it is important, and a lot of schools are trending toward fluency being a high priority.
