To utter aloud or render (deliver) in speech (something written, printed, etc.): He reads a story. To have such knowledge of (a language) as to be able to understand things written in it: to be able to read French.
To be able to speak or write smoothly, easily, or readily: a fluent speaker; fluent in six languages. Speaking or writing with ease. Flowing, as a stream.
A term used to describe how well someone can read a piece of writing. The measure of someone's ability to understand and comprehend sentences when reading and absorbing information. The ability to read text accurately, quickly and with confidence. Fluency is the ability of a reader to be able to read a passage of text accurately and quickly. A fluent reader can read aloud with expression and without struggle.
1. Importance of reading; why do we read? For leisure/fun/entertainment. To encourage and expand creativity and imagination. To fuel mental development. To stimulate the muscles of the eyes. To enhance concentration. To help in acquiring and gaining knowledge. To help children develop vital language skills.
2. Importance of Reading Fluency; why do we have to read fluently? Once a child learns to read some believe that reading instruction should stop and that the job is complete. However there is much more to reading than simply being able to call the words. After a child has mastered being able to read we then must focus on how he or she reads. Fluency helps close the gap between recognizing the words and understanding the text. It is the bridge to reading comprehension. Fluent readers do not have to worry with decoding words or figuring out the text. They can put their focus on the meaning of the text. Because reading fluency and comprehension are so closely tied together, it is important to instruct our children how to read fluently.
Identify the fluent and the regular readers from this video:
Before we teach our students how to read fluently we should first teach them how to read. 4. Read short passages. Use pre-taught words to create a fun meaningful story and ask students to read. 1. Introduce letters and sounds Introduce names of letters. Introduce sounds of the letters. 2. Introduce simple words Use pre-taught letters and sounds to read simple meaningful words. Introduce parts of speech of the words i.e. noun, verb, adjective, pronoun, article 3. Read and create simple sentences. Introduce pre- taught words in simple sentences to introduce the language’s sentence structure. Ask the students to create sentences of their own using the learnt words.
2. Introduce simple words: We can use miming, realia, pictures, and videos to help students understand the meanings of the words. * trabaja * helado * hermosa*hospital
* amarillo * una / un= a (fem/mas) * blusa * gusta * lleva * ella= she
3. Read and create simple sentences: a. Ella lleva una blusa amarilla. She wears a yellow blouse. b. Ella trabaja en un hospital. She works in a hospital. c. Le gusta el ………………………… She likes ice cream. (Ice cream is appealing to her.) helado
4. Read a short passage: Emily trabaja en un hospital. Ella lleva una blusa amarilla. Le gusta el helado. Emily es hermosa.
Once our students are able to read we can encourage them to read fluently. This simple yet fun and effective technique helps us do just that.
Emily trabaja en un hospital. Ella lleva una blusa amarilla. Le gusta el helado. Emily es hermosa. *** TASK: 1.Read the above paragraph to yourself, then discuss and scan it for any difficult words. 2. Read in chorus. 3.
