Reading fluency, one of the Five Pillars of Reading, is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. Reading fluency greatly influences reading comprehension. Children must be able to read fluently in order to comprehend what they read, whether they are reading aloud or silently. Fluent readers read in phrases and add appropriate intonation when reading aloud without needing to pause to decode words or look up definitions. 

Fluency plays a key role in comprehension and is essential in keeping young learners motivated. When children are reading fluently, it frees up mental resources to allow them to improve their comprehension of what they are reading. Research has shown that students need frequent opportunities for substantial practice at their instructional reading level in order to achieve an appropriate level of reading fluency. Silent reading does not accomplish this goal. It is important to provide the student with feedback as well as opportunities to self-correct. This combination of consistent practice and regular monitoring is critical in promoting fluency.

Determinamos la fluidez de lectura al examinar tanto la velocidad de lectura como la expresi?n del texto. Los lectores muy fluidos pueden leer el texto autom?ticamente y sin la descodificaci?n de letras a sonidos. Los ni?os deben construir una base de decodificaci?n s?lida, as? como una base de palabras de uso frecuente que se reconozcan autom?ticamente para aumentar sus tasas de fluidez.


Reading Fluency


Las tasas de fluidez de lectura m?s lentas pueden conducir a dificultades en la escuela, ya que a menudo son el resultado de pasar demasiado tiempo decodificando palabras individuales. Esto puede llevar a no tener tiempo suficiente para entender un pasaje o texto en su conjunto.

Los tutores pueden trabajar en frases y entonaciones, lecturas repetidas y repetidas.
