What Is Reading Fluency?
Reading fluency is the ability to read quickly and accurately. Once you are fluent in reading, you are able to focus on what the text means rather than trying to decode words. Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills helps you become a fluent reader in 5 minutes a day with short reading drills. There has been an independent 5-year study showing the substantial gains using it.
Anyone Can Improve Reading Fluency and Comprehension Skills
One homeschool mom recently tried our Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills out with her family:
“When I first heard of Bonnie Terry’s 5 Minutes to Better Reading Skills program, I assumed it was only for beginning readers. Not so! It’s for everyone! My kids from 3rd to 6th grade are already benefiting from it and we’ve only been using it for a week. Their reading speed, confidence, and comprehension are going up by leaps and bounds!”
Research Supports Reading Fluency Drills
University of Florida states that reading fluency practice that is only 5 or 6 minutes a day will result in substantial gains. It’s the daily fluency practice that makes the difference.
Improve Reading Fluency with Quick 5 Minute Drills
5 Minutes to Better Reading Skills was developed by Bonnie Terry, M.Ed., BCET (Board Certified Educational Therapist). This proven method improves reading through visual and auditory learning.

Nancy H. says, “I can’t get over the difference. Bridget won’t put a book down. Now we have to go into her room when we go to bed to be sure her light is off…she reads for hours at night. I can’t believe she read Harry Potter in just a few days!”
Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills is perfect for families, home-schooling families, pull-out programs, small group instruction, special day classes, and private practices.
Debra Wilson from Redding, California states, “We did a five-year study using Bonnie Terry’s Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills and the reading fluency of kids in our school district improved dramatically.”
Reading strategies improve reading fluency and phonemic awareness
Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills addresses some of the underlying causes of fluency problems such as visual tracking and visual closure in short 5-minute fluency practice sessions. Additionally, because phonemic awareness skills are critical to becoming a fluent reader, they are incorporated into the fluency drills. And, as you become a more fluent reader, your comprehension improves too!
