Many students who have difficulty learning to decode can readily learn the skills necessary to figure out individual words. However, many of these students find it very hard to read words fast enough to comprehend the meaning of what they read. These students need to develop fluency in responding to print.
Reading Speed Drills help students develop automaticity at responding to the orthographic units that make up words and whole words. This fluency transfers to reading new words.
This product provides teachers with a data collection sheet, and 6 speed drills (R-Controlled Vowels, Consonant Blends, Vowel Digraphs with Long Vowel Sounds, Magic-E Words VS. CVC Words, Variant Vowels and Diphthongs, and Short and Long Vowels).
Have students practice reading these words daily, and monitor their progress and record how many words they've read in a minute every week. While assessing the students, point to each word as they are read. Do not let the student move on until the word is read correctly.
