We are using these Fluency Passages to
help your child develop effective reading skills. Our goals are to help
students read and go back in the passage and find their answers. Students are
to work on this independently for homework to strengthen their skills.
The same story will be read 3 times per evening,
Monday-Thursday for homework. Your child’s Homework Log will indicate which
story is to be read each week.
- A. Your
child will read the 1st time to build accuracy. It should be timed for 1
minute. Count the number of words read correctly and record the words per
minute (wpm) in the Home Practice section.
- B. Your
child will read the story a 2nd time to practice using punctuation when reading
and to develop expression.
- C. Your
child will read the story a 3rd time to develop comprehension.
- D. In
addition to fluency practice, your child will answer one to two questions per
night from the passage. This will help to enhance comprehension and vocabulary
We have found these reading folders to be very
effective in developing reading skills. By working together, your child will
become a successful reader.
Thank you, Ms. Jones
