A nonfluent reader puts a large amount of effort into decoding words. By the time such a reader finishes a sentence, he or she may forget what the sentence was even about. Comprehension is blocked because the process of decoding takes so much time and effort the short-term memory cant grasp the fragmented input of information. By contrast, a fluent reader reads in smooth and continuous phrases and the brain can retain and comprehend what is read. www.k12reader.com
Why Is Fluency Important? While fluency alone will not guarantee strong reading comprehension skills, it is absolutely a necessary component. Not only is fluency important to oral reading, but successful silent reading requires fluent reading as well. www.k12reader.com
