Techniques to improve reading fluency in the elementary classroom
The following research was conducted at an elementary school in a small community with little diversity. The total school population at my site is about 400 students, kindergarten through fourth grade. The total school population K-12 is around 1100 students. I have been working with second grade students on their fluency for seven years. Therefore, I wanted to evaluate the effectiveness of increased High Frequency Word practice, increased Sustained Silent Reading, and Words Correct per Minute assessments. The students in my second grade class practiced their High Frequency Words once a week. The students increased their SSR time up to thirty minutes per day. The students also took two Words Correct per Minute assessments. The data collected included scores from the WCPM assessments and the Star Reader reading assessment.
