Instruction: Fluency - Introduction Video 1
During the opening minutes of the lesson the teacher uses specific language to tell the students whatthey will learn today and defines what it means to be a fluent reader. She reminds the students how they can read more fluently and refers them to list of strategies they can use to become more fluent readers. he also explicitly tells them why it is important to read fluently.
Ok, today we are going to practice being a fluent ready, and we have been practicing this quite a bit this year, so we already know things that a fluent reader does. A fluent reader reads accurately, they read at the right rate, and they read with good expression. Today for our fluency lesson, we are going to practice reading accurately. That means, when we are reading, we should read all the words correctly that are on the page.
