Description Timed Reading for Fluency is a useful series for students who want to develop their reading fluency. Because fluency development requires students to make the best use of what they already know, the reading passages in this series target familiar vocabulary and grammar.
Such reading material allows students to practice recognizing and processing texts that they read without undue struggle while aiming toward a faster reading speed. This series of books uses timed readings of standard lengths so that students can track their progress throughout the course.
