Texts Which Facilitate Fluent Reading
Use known texts, or texts with rhythm-like songs and poems (or sometimes prose) because they carry the reader forward. Choose repetitive texts which are better read with exaggerated expressions like “The Greedy Cat.”

Read a story to the child (or group) demonstrating fluent reading. Read it with the child, emphasizing the phrasing. This should provide support from the feel and the sound of the patterns of words and breaks or pauses. Write down a repetitive sentence or phrase from a specially selected story and treat it as described for the above story.

Clay, Marie, Reading Recovery A Guidebook for Teachers in Training, p. 53, 1993.

The following is a list of texts by guided reading levels that may be well known stories or texts with rhythm-like songs. A few additional texts have been listed which contain conversation or punctuation that facilitates fluency. When working with a child on fluency, it is recommended that several types of texts be used to determine which type of text best facilitates fluency for that child. This list is limited and includes only a sample of texts that facilitate fluent reading. Nancy Ottey, Reading Recovery Teacher Leader, Howard County
