At the beginning of each and every Group Reading session there is a pre-teach section within which children practise the recognition of sound spellings that are the target sound for the book, and those that they may not have been taught yet, or that they may find tricky. They also practise reading words which they may not be able to decode. This 'pre-teach' should give the children the skills they need to ensure they can obtain fluency quickly.
The second read/session with each book focusses on building fluency. This often means that the children re-read sentences several times, and that they are taught to read punctuation.
Within the second and third session with each book the children are taught to develop expression (their 'story teller voice').
