You Can Improve Reading Fluency and Comprehension Skills
- Improve reading speed and accuracy (80 – 180% growth in 3 to 6 months)
- Improve processing speed (How quickly you see and recognize shapes, letters, and words on a page.)
- Improve visual tracking (How efficiently your eyes move from left to right across the page.)
- Improve comprehension (Studies show a key link between fluency and comprehension.)
- Improve confidence (Students see their improvement on a daily basis which improves their self-esteem and confidence.)
One home-school 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!”
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.

Research Supports Reading Fluency Drills
These are the results from 15 years of data with 1st graders through 8th graders. Additional studies from the University of Florida have replicated these results showing significant growth in reading level and reading rate. Daily 5 to 6-minute fluency intervention focuses on phonics and oral reading.
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.
Check out how much fun the kids have and just how simple it is in Celena Marie’s video.
“My 7-year-old began with a reading speed of 37 words/minute (with one error) and has improved to 46 words/minute (without an error) in just a few days.
My 5-year-old son learned to read recently and he has gotten in on the “racing” too. His beginning speed was 10 words/minute (with two errors) and his current speed is 23 words/minute (without an error) in just over a week!”

“I’ve been using the Five Minutes to Better Reading Skills with my 8-year-old son. He’s reading, but he still lacks confidence and speed. He loves doing the speed drills in the book! It’s because it is instant success. He looks at a list of short words that he can read with over 90% accuracy.”

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!”
