Fluency for Families

Fluency involves reading at good pace and with expression. Reading with expression shows that we are making sense out of what we are reading and we are phrasing it in such a way that others can listen and understand too. Fluency begins with reading out loud, but eventually transfers to silent reading. One study (Rasinski, et, al, 2016) showed that students with better fluency rates scored higher on the ACT, one test used for college entrance.

The Parent Toolkit will help you navigate your child’s journey from pre-kindergarten through high school. It is designed to help you track and support progress at each stage.

Studies show children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school, and our hope is to provide you with useful tips and tools to support your growing child at all ages. The Parent Toolkit is a one-stop shop resource that was produced and developed with parents in mind.
