WILSON Fluency®

Developing Accuracy, Speed, and Expression

Wilson Fluency is designed to provide explicit fluency instruction and reading practice to develop the application of skills with connected text.

Based on the skill building sequence of the Wilson Reading System®, Wilson Fluency provides extended reading passages to give students the focused practice that helps increase fluency and comprehension.

Wilson Fluency / Basic contains four Fluency Readers that can supplement any reading program which introduces short vowels in words with progressively more challenging patterns, including Fundations® and Just Words®. Each reader includes five stories with reading passages of 200-250 words and corresponding fluency practice.

Program Highlights

  • Phonetic and high frequency word practice improves accuracy
    and automaticity.
  • Controlled short phrases with taught word patterns and High Frequency / Sight words are practiced with connected text.
  • Longer phrases, presented in meaningful chunks to develop prosody, contain both taught and untaught elements.
  • To further develop phrasing and expression, students practice a phrased version of a story and then read the un-phrased passage.
  • Practice with enriched and decodable passages enhances listening and reading comprehension and vocabulary.
  • Non-controlled decodable passages in the Basic Reader help students begin to transfer their emerging decoding skills to reading authentic text with support and with success.
  • Laminated Tally Sheets and Student Recording Forms make it easy to monitor student progress.
  • Students graph their progress in their own Student Fluency Readers.
