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 a challenge, but our reading drills make it so much easier!
How does it work?
Each week, your student will work on one reading drill. The reading drills start with the most basic short vowels and progressively get more difficult over the 52 reading drills (long vowels, vowel team (vowel-vowel words), r-controlled words, and more).
Your student will do a practice read (1-2 minutes) and then a timed read (1 minute). A parent, older sibling, or teacher will follow along and keep track of any errors. Afterward, your student will chart how many words they read and how many mistakes they made from the timed read.
Kids love to see their progress each day and that it only takes 5 minutes a day. This is huge for students that feel like they aren’t making improvements in their reading abilities.
This reading fluency program provides daily 5-minute lessons so that all learners, no matter their age, succeed! Because students chart their progress each day, they are able to tangibly see their improvement!
The reading instruction helps:
- Reading speed and accuracy
- Struggling readers
- Word recognition
- Repeated readings of the same passage to build skills and reading performance
- Oral fluency reading
- Reading rate
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!”– Celena Marie
“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.”– Grateful Remedial Teacher, NY
