Oral reading fluency is a skill that is imperative for a child to be successful as a reader! Between second and third grade, students are expected to transition from the "learning to read" stage of reading into the "reading to learn" stage. Oral reading fluency often holds students back in regards to their reading comprehension, and this is a skill that I am passionate about developing! In this ongoing course, students will spend 9 weeks creating their very own fluency binder. We'll meet daily to practice fluency skills and to review the content that we add to our binders each week. This will enable your child to build confidence and independence in using these tools on their own, and give you resources to practice oral reading fluency at home. We will use research based strategies that include using fluency phrases, timed reading passages, seasonal songs, poems, and sight words. These strategies are taught using lots of positive reinforcement, enthusiasm, and energy!
In this ongoing course, students will improve their oral reading fluency by practicing a variety of phrases, seasonal poems/songs, passages, and sight words! Reading words, vocabulary enhancement, making sentences with new words learnt, short story reading.
