I was told repetition mixed with new materials. Also a parent reading with or to the child helps.
Repition is very important in reading fluency. You want your child to be able to read the words and understand what they are reading. Our school focuses on comprehension, not speed.
I think both are equally important. They need repetition to build confidence and reinforce what they've learned, but they also need new material to make sure they are truly remembering/retaining what they've learned and not just repeating a story from memory.
