Reading Fluency

reading books


Fluency is the ability to read text accurately and quickly with expression.  Embedded in this is the notion of reading with proper pitch and cadence as is dictated by punctuation.  Fluency is aided by the rapid recognition of high frequency words and the usage of meaning, structure, and visual cues to self-correct.
