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.

Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills gives teachers and parents everything they need to help children improve their reading: fast, fun, motivating, success with over 40 phonic reading drills.

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.

“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!”

-Nancy H.

Your child can become a successful reader.

In fact, your child can actually get to the point where they enjoy reading so much that you need to tell them to stop reading, turn their light off, and go to bed.

Your child can even improve their reading skills in just 5 minutes a day. Over 40+ years, Bonnie has discovered that every child can improve their skills. It does not matter whether or not they have identified learning disabilities, dyslexia, or perception problems with the right reading strategies.



Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills is perfect for:

  • Families
  • Home-schooling families
  • Pull-out programs
  • Small group instruction
  • Special day classes
  • 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.”

Think back to times in your own life. When you were learning a new skill, did you learn the skill in one day, or did it take repeated practices? You know that if you didn’t practice you got rusty. Michael Jordan didn’t become a great basketball player without practicing. As Aristotle says, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an activity, but a habit.”

You know that ‘more of the same’ doesn’t always make a difference. Your child has been getting ‘more of the same’ every day at school, and their reading skills haven’t improved as much as they could or should. Have you asked yourself what you could do with your child to really make a difference in their reading skills?

You can improve your reading speed and accuracy by doing a few simple things. Fluency is just one aspect of reading skills. It is the component that forms the bridge, makes the connection between decoding and comprehension. Unfortunately, fluency is one of the most neglected reading skills.

Reading strategies improve reading fluency and phonemic awareness

Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills even 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!

In 5 minutes a day you can…

  • Improve reading fluency
  • Improve reading accuracy
  • Improve reading comprehension

Included is both the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills™ Teacher’s Book and the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills™ Student’s Book.
