Why is Reading Fluency So Important in the Primary Grades?

Need Tips for Improving Reading Fluency in the Primary Grades

Why is reading fluency important?
Have you ever tried to learn to play an instrument?  If so, think about those early days of learning the instrument.  I can remember my days in middle school band.  Each note was a struggle!  If I was lucky enough to recognize the note at first glance, then came the struggle of how to hold my lips and which keys should be held down, not to mention when the note was to be played.  After lots and lots of practice, frustration, and even a few tears, the notes started to come more easily.
