Fluency Passages - http://treasures.macmillanmh.com/california/teachers/building-reading-and-writing-skills/student-fluency-passages If your child has difficulty reading text fluency and with expression try this activity. Directions: Click on the word "Fluency Passages" Find your child's grade level. Either print it or have your child read from the device. Set a timer for one minute. Count how many words your child was able to read correctly. Have them answer the questions below the passage and/or retell you what they read. Discuss the words they read incorrectly. (It helps if you get a scratch piece of paper to write down the words they read incorrectly.)
Comprehension - If your child has difficulty with the comprehension of a text try these resources. (Click on one of the files below for some question stems.) Choose a book to read on their reading or close to their reading level. To check have them read the first page or paragraph, if they are missing 3-5 words then the text maybe to difficult. You can also read them the text if a text on their level is unavailable. I highly suggest visiting the local library and checking out books or finding a comfy spot to sit back and relax. Ask your child a few of these questions, have them write their answers for 1-2 questions. Make sure they answer the question by stating the answer, the explanation, and evidence from the text to support their answer.
