Fluency Activities

  • Create little books: write each connected text story on a piece of paper, and fold it into book form to present to students. This is their first book!
  • When you write a story on more than one line, help students learn that when they get to the end of the first line, they move back to the beginning of the next line.
  • For the longer passages, ask students not only to form mental images, but also to draw pictures to illustrate the story.
  • To keep children in step when reading together, try clapping at the pace you want them to read each word (i.e., children should read a word each time you clap). An advantage of this approach is that you can speed up or slow down the pace depending on passage difficulty.
