Fluency lessons do not take much time and are easy to prepare and teach. Fluency is simple to measure and progress is readily apparent. Fluency is a frequently neglected piece of the reading puzzle. Students should learn many sight words well and they need to read many different kinds of text in lots of different ways at both home and school.A number of strategies can improve fluency including: modeling good oral reading, providing oral support for readers, offering plenty of practice opportunities, and encouraging fluency through phrasing. "Fluency, Grades 4-8", contains research-based activities to support students' fluency development. Original, engaging, leveled reading passages, authored by Q. L. Pearce, accompany most lessons. Many passages can be applied with several strategies and utilized across grade levels. A quick reference coding system makes it easy for you to identify the reading level and assign appropriate passages to your students.
