Reflection: Self-Talk Poetry: Reading Fluently - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


For years we’ve used short passages, such as poems to increase students’ fluency. Sometimes we’ve used leveled passages, like today we’ve used poetry, and other times Readers’ Theater texts. Of course, to see true improvement, practice like today’s must be more than just a sporadic exercise. I try to incorporate fluency practice each week to build on skills and see improvement in students’ overall reading abilities.
