READ, READ, READ!
Reading Fluency: Students will have fluency homework Monday through Thursday. Each night students will read a given passage for a timed one-minute to a parent, older sibling, etc. While the student is reading the listener will mark errors, total words read, and initial each night it’s completed. Homework will be given Monday and collected Friday for 5 points. Fluency homework will not be given on short weeks. Fluency is the ability to read a text accurately, quickly, and with expression. Building fluency will allow the readers brain more time to comprehend and understand the text that is being read, instead of focusing on decoding the words.
