How it Works

Each day you will do a 5-minute reading fluency exercise 5 times a week.

  • You will do a practice read (1-2 minutes) and then a timed read (1 minute).
  • A parent, older sibling, peer, or teacher will follow along and keep track of any errors.
  • Afterward, you or your student will chart how many words read and how many mistakes made from the timed read.

At the end of the 30-days, you will see a minimum of a 20% increase in reading speed, or your money back.

See Real Progress Everyday

Each day you will chart your progress. You will see your words per minute go up and your mistakes go down. Mistakes are mispronounced words, repeated words, and skipped words.

You train your eyes to move more efficiently across a page from left to right. You will improve your visual discrimination skills to quickly and easily identify the differences between letters and words. You will speed up the processing time it takes you from seeing a word to being able to say the word out loud.

What is reading fluency?

Reading fluency is the ability to read smoothly, easily, and quickly. Good readers can read words automatically without having to sound out each syllable (also known as decoding). In other words, you don’t have to spend a lot of effort and attention on the mechanics of reading. Reading becomes easy. Word recognition becomes easy.

Reading fluency is the basis of comprehension and enables us to read faster and more accurately. Teaching fluency is often difficult, but our reading drills make it so much easier!

What do parents and teachers say?

One homeschool mom recently tried our reading fluency training out with her family:

“When I first heard of Bonnie Terry’s 5 Minutes to Better Reading Skills program, I assumed it was only for beginning readers. Not so! It’s for everyone! My kids from 3rd to 6th grade are already benefiting from it and we’ve only been using it for a week. Their reading speed, confidence, and comprehension are going up by leaps and bounds!”

“I ordered your fluency drills and I am using them. They are an extremely valuable resource! Thank you for taking the time to organize these drills. The patterns of each drill page as well as the succession are truly a stroke of brilliance. Students are so self-motivated and are eager to track their progress.”
