Today in our workshop time we talked about the habits of fluent readers. I told them that in grade 1 they had to work hard to decode (figure out) the words, but now that they are in grade 2 they need to start to think about how their reading sounds as well.
I found some cute Star Wars reading fluency posters (on Pinterest of course 🙂 ) and we talked about all the parts of reading fluently. Here they are:
The only way to become a more fluent reader is to practice reading out loud. Keep these factors in mind when reading with your child, and help them to become a more fluent reader.
We are going to practice reading fluently tomorrow using two of my favourite things….Gerald and Piggie books, and the Ipads!
