Learning to read with fluency isn’t easy for kids a lot of the time. Nonetheless, it is super important for kids to read with fluency. There is no getting around it. Using poetry is a good way for kids to start reading with fluency and expression. Poetry is typically short and sweet and if you pick just the right poem, you can find a lot of punctuation topics to teach about.
