I've been a little distracted this week as I was voraciously reading this fabulous book:
I'm taking taking classes for my reading endorsement and my current class requires a project in the area of comprehension. One of the comprehension strands we studied was Fluency, and I figured that was an area I wanted to do more with in my classroom. The project is to develop at least 6 lessons in the area of focus. One of the resources I chose to help me was The Fluent Reader (2nd Edition): Oral & Silent Reading Strategies for Building Fluency, Word Recognition & Comprehension. I got it on Wednesday (thanks to Amazon's great shipping!), and finished it up last night. It was an easy read and so practical! I loaned it to my friend and classroom neighbor to read over the weekend. I'm so excited to get started on my project lessons and thinking through how to better implement Fluency into my classroom next year. What do you do to promote Fluency in your classrooms?
