Repeated Reading Fun

A strategy that is used regularly in my teacher focus groups is “Timed Repeated Reading”.  Timed repeated readings are an instructional practice for monitoring students’ fluency development. Repeated readings, under timed conditions, of familiar instructional level text can increase students’ reading speed which can improve comprehension.  You can also use this strategy at home as part of your child’s nightly reading.

This clip explains how you can use repeated reading at home:

I read the text “Let’s Go Skating.”  With fluency and accuracy, it took me 57 seconds.

Let’s Go Skating

I wonder how long it takes you to read it with fluency and accuracy (that means you have to re-read it many times so you make no errors & don’t forget to stop at full stops).
