accuracy when reading

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have several students who are very inaccurate readers. They just don't pay attention to what they say. This, of course, affects their running records scores tremendously. I have tried using an index card as a guide, running my finger along the text as they read, whisper reading as they read aloud, straight up asking them if that is what the text said, etc. They are just not aware of their errors. They think they read the words correctly! This is not a decoding issue. If I point to a word, they can read it. Their brains are just going faster than their eyes and they are saying what they think the text will say. I just don't know how to combat this issue.
