Reading Fluency

    Our class continually works on reading fluency. It is an important foundation for the students. 
    Fluency is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. In order to understand what they read, children must be able to read fluently whether they are reading aloud or silently. When reading aloud, fluent readers read in phrases and add intonation appropriately.

I've included the link to an article that Timothy Rasinski wrote about reading fluency that all educators should read titled, Creating Fluent Readers A growing body of evidence points to reading fluency as an important factor in student reading success.
