Repeated Readings with Poetry

An Impact on Rate and Prosody

Why Read Poetry?

Reading fluency, an integral part of the reading process, is characterized by reading rate and prosody. Children who find reading difficult struggle to read with fluency and need opportunities to read with expression and at a reasonable rate. Doing so helps them become better at reading comprehension. Reading poetry is one way that helps students become more fluent and expressive readers.
