What is fluency? Fluency is the ability to read a text whether it is fiction or non-fiction quickly with accuracy and expression. Fluent readers are able to recognize words without hesitation. It’s a skill that often bridges the gap between simply reading words and reading for information.

Students who can read fluently focus less on figuring out words and more on understanding and comprehension.
