fluency sheets and poems

Please have your child read this week’s fluency sheet in their vocab/fluency book to you each night. This will help your child to increase their ability to automatically decode this week’s phonic patterns. 

Reading fluency is a child's ability to read a book or other text correctly, quickly, and with expression. A fluent reader doesn't have to stop and "decode" each word. Rather, most of the words can be read automatically. This means the reader can focus his attention on what the story or text means. For that reason, fluency is critically important — it is the bridge between decoding words and understanding what has been read.
