Fluency

Fluency

Fluency is the ability to read text accurately and effortlessly, using appropriate expression and phrasing. 

Activities:

 

Repeated Readings: 

Choose a poem, play, or passage that will be easy for your child to read.  Read the passage aloud to your child. Then, read it together. Continue to practice the passage, focusing on phrasing and expression. The goal is to sound smooth and natural. For a variation, you can try using different voices (mouse, monster), or  use different emotions (sad, angry). 

 

Recordings:

Try recording your child’s voice on the first reading, and again after several practices. Listen to both recordings to hear the differences!
