Sentence fluency is one of the traits of quality writing. The lyrics for this song were pulled from a scoring rubric describing advanced proficiency in the writing trait of sentence fluency. Check out the music video at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMSaNY-wIxo


Sentence Fluency! This is the rhythm and the flow
One idea to the next connecting naturally, you know
And it sounds effortless, like words are rolling off your tongue
And there's variety of style in the way y' sentences ' begun
And the length of the sentences is varied too
Your sentence structure draws attention to ideas you want it to!
You can even use a sentence fragment once in a while!
Because you've got control of your rhythm and style!
So, you find the power, and you combine it with grace!
And your dialogue sounds like amigos talking face to face!

Sentence Fluency! Words flow like a river!
Find the rhythm and the flow in the words that you deliver!
