What Is Fluency?

Fluency is a term that is often used with our students, but do you know what this buzzword means? Fluency is a broad term that includes:

  • Accuracy (reading the words correctly)
  • Rate (reading at a good pace)
  • Prosody (reading with expression)
  • Comprehension (understanding what he/she has read)

Below are some examples of how students practice fluency at school and how they can practice at home as well.
