Hopping into a Good Book

Growing and Fluent Reading

Ashley Forster

Rationale: Being able to comprehend text and to be able to read words automatically with expression are important goals in becoming a fluent reader. A fluent reader should not struggle with words when reading, a fluent reader enjoys what he or she is reading and is able to read it fast, smooth and with expression. By reading and e-reading decodable words in connected text should help the students become more fluent readers.
