Use the camera to take a picture of the page you practiced reading fluently. 4. Tap the microphone to record yourself reading fluently. Start by saying, "today I am reading from (book name)" then read your page. 5. Use the drawing tool to circle any words that were tricky. 6. Tap the green check to add to your journal. Note to Family : Research shows that families can help their children learn to be fluent readers.
