Product Description
Fluency practice can and should be more than timed readings. But where do you start? This product is adapted from a research article by Timothy Rasinski and Bruce Stevenson and it puts research into practice with your students. This fluency program is a ten-minute home-based program that lasts for 10-14 weeks. It uses scaffolding to help students learn to be fluent readers. Each new reading starts by having the rhyme read to the child, then with the child and finally the rhyme is read by the child.

Just a few snippets of what parents from my school have said about this program:

“This is the first time I felt like I was really helping my child learn how to read.”

“I can’t believe how much my child’s reading has improved.”

As always, some students didn’t bring it back on a regular basis, so I trained fifth grade peer tutors in how to do this. They come everyday and WOW has it been wonderful.

Fluency Through Nursery Rhymes can be used as an intervention or with everyone, as homework or with tutors. Let research help you build stronger readers.
