Reading fluency refers to the ease at which students can read a text. As more words become stored in a child's memory, the child gains fluency and automaticity in word recognition. The more practice a child has to decode words, the more likely the child will recognize the word by sight with error. Reading fluency improves reading comprehension. When children read a text on their level, they can devote their full attention to making meaning from the text. Accordingly, if children have to devote too much time to decoding words, their reading will be slowed and comprehension difficulties will occur. Students must read on their level in order to improve fluency and comprehension.
