This is an EXCELLENT bundle for supporting students in reading fluency!
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. Students need direct instruction on the 6 characteristics of what makes a fluent reader.
The 6 Characteristics of Fluent Reading Are:
1.Pausing: noticing punctuation for meaning
2.Phrases: grouping words for meaning
3.Stress: stressing words to convey meaning
4.Intonation: rise/fall, loud/quiet to reflect meaning
5.Rate: reading to help the listener understand the text: not too fast, not too slow
6.Integration: putting it all together for meaning
THE BIG IDEA:
• When students are struggling with FLUENCY, it means they are really struggling with COMPREHENSION!!!
HOW CAN WE HELP?
- We can create fluency lessons that offer direct instruction to practicing the 6 fluency skills listed above, with the understanding that students are really struggling with comprehending the text
