Re: Fluency Help

My second grader has done well reading poems. They have a natural rhythm.

Re: Fluency Help

Repetition helps build fluency. Books need to be at his level and he should read and re-read until fluent.

Teach attention to punctuation which is fun/easy to do through poetry and really expressive books like those by Robert Munsch.

Reader's Theater builds fluency.....have him act out a book.
