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.

Nous déterminons la maîtrise de la lecture en examinant à la fois la vitesse de lecture et l'expression du texte. Les lecteurs très fluides sont capables de lire le texte automatiquement et sans décodage des lettres aux sons. Les enfants doivent construire une base de décodage solide ainsi qu'une base de mots visuels qui sont reconnus automatiquement afin d'augmenter leur fluidité.


Reading Fluency


Des taux de maîtrise de la lecture plus lents peuvent entraîner des difficultés à l'école, car ils sont souvent le résultat de passer trop de temps à décoder des mots individuels. Cela peut entraîner un manque de temps pour comprendre un passage ou un texte dans son ensemble.

Les tuteurs peuvent travailler sur la formulation et l'intonation, les lectures en écho et répétées.
