Fluency

Fluency | Fluency | Scoop.it
Fluency is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. In order to understand what they read, children must be able to read fluently whether they are reading aloud or silently. When reading aloud, fluent readers read in phrases and add intonation appropriately. Their reading is smooth and has expression.
Marietta Adams's insight:

This article from Reading Rockets defines fluency, presents how trouble with fluency looks, and gives ideas on how to help.
