Reading Fluency Activity: Practicing Intonation and Pausing

Reading Fluency Activity: Practicing Intonation and Pausing



Description: We can use punctuation to help clue our clients in for improved reading fluency.  Get a list of common punctuation and what it means for intonation and pausing.  For example, a period means a long pause and a coma means a short one.  A question mark means rising intonation and a period means falling.  Then, get a list of sample sentences and help the child practice the correct intonation and pausing with those.  Once the child has the hang of it, you can switch to harder texts and passages.

Helping You Help Them

Our Mission

We all got into this field because we wanted to help.  But high caseloads, tons of paperwork, and not enough planning time leads to burn-out and stress.

The SLP Solution’s mission is to support you with tools, resources, and expert advice so that you can be there for the children who depend on you!

*** The SLP Solution is for informational and educational purposes only and does not provide medical or psychological advice.  We provide general resources but cannot tell you exactly what should be done for a specific client.  Every client is different and your clinical judgement should be used when making decisions about specific individuals.
