February 27 2017 Reading Newsletter
Greetings from the Land of OZ!
How are your Read Across America Day plans going? Are you ready for March 2? That's this Thursday! I think that I waited too long to get my hat this year. I will be digging out a Dr. Seuss book from my collection, and my husband will be surprised with his green eggs!
Before I was a teacher, I did not understand how crucial reading fluency is to developing reading comprehension. It seemed more like a style problem. It is not! Fluency is absolutely necessary for a reader to get the most out of the text that he is reading. Next week, I'll offer some strategies to improve fluency. Check it out.
Fluency in Reading
How can fluency be improved? The short answer is one word-practice. Find multiple ways to help the reader practice. Reading material that is not difficult for him to read is the first step in finding those creative ways for the student to practice. Don't forget to praise for improvement!
