Fluency Fluency is the ability to read rapidly accurately with good expression
Comprehension Comprehension is the ultimate goal of reading instruction. Do you understand what you are reading while you are reading it? Can you use the information after you have read it?

Phonics Dance & Word Wall Words Alphabet Chant Hunk and Chunks
Phonics: Phonics Dance Why do we need the Phonics Dance? Reading is a difficult process. Here is why… 84% of the words in the English Language are phonetically correct. BUT…. The 16% that are NOT phonetically correct appear in all types of literature 80% of the time!
We add 1 or 2 a week

Picture Walk Take a picture walk. Talk about what you notice and what might happen. Discuss any tricky words.
Check the picture. What does the picture show the dog making?
Look at the first sound. Look at the picture. Get your mouth ready to say the first word. Its not just a fish, its a goldfish.
Look for hunk and chunks or smaller words or word parts. The word think has the hunk & chunk: th and the smaller word ink. The word party has a smaller word: art.
S tretch out the word by saying each sound.
Re-Reading Stripped…striped? Take a guess and then re-read. Did it make sense? Always re-read after using any strategy.
Skip it, read the rest and go back If the word is in the middle of the sentence, skip the word you are stuck on, read the rest and use the clues in the rest of the sentence to figure out the hard word. If you were stuck on caught or near reading the rest of the sentence might help you figure it out.
Examples of Comprehension Strategies
