There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.
Reading gives us some place to go, when we have to stay where we are.
Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.
The more that you read, the more you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go.
Being a fluent reader is vital. This means being able 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.
Watch the videos below to help your child develop fluency as a reader.
