Competent readers don't read word - by - word. We read meaningful groups of words together. A method of encouraging children to stop reading word-by-word is similar to sight word flash cards, however the cards contain phrases rather than individual words. Some examples of common phrases children should know include:
- ...there is...
- ...would you...
- ...in the way...
Make use of our Fast Phrase flash cards:
Another simple activity to build fluency is be re-reading passages of a text. These fluency builders allow you to develop flunecy by repeated reading.
