This is an EXCELLENT resource for supporting students in reading fluency and intonation!
Many people believe that to read fluently means to 'read fast.' But, in fact, there is much more to reading with fluency than being able to read fast.
Having students read a passage for speed is not
teaching them to read with fluency. Student need
direct instruction on the 6 characteristics of what makes a fluent reader.
The 6 Characteristics of Fluent Reading Are:
noticing punctuation for meaning2.Phrases:
grouping words for meaning3.Stress:
stressing words to convey meaning4.Intonation:
rise/fall, loud/quiet to reflect meaning5.Rate:
reading to help the listener understand
the text: not too fast, not too slow
putting it all together for meaningTHE BIG IDEA
• When students are struggling with FLUENCY, it means they are really struggling with COMPREHENSION!!!
HOW CAN WE HELP?
