Reading Fluency
We will be working on reading fluency in Third Grade.  Students will be practicing their fluency (read aloud) weekly.
Each time a student reads aloud we are trying to improve in these areas:

1. Comprehension (understanding)
2. Accuracy (reading words exactly as printed)
3. Pacing (rate of reading sounding natural)
4. Punctuation (pay attention to punctuation and bold text)
5. Expression (don't sound like a robot)
