One thing I really like about "Learn Japanese: A New College Text" (by John Young and Kimiko Nakajima-Okano) is that it has a heavy focus on drills and patterns. It dedicates a large portion of the book to reading passages aloud, and then transforming what you just said by feeding you one word to use in a transformed sentence; that sort of thing. I think that's really helpful in developing an ability to form spoken sentences well.
If your struggle isn't so much in forming sentences, but in reading written sentences aloud, then your best bet is lots and lots of practice. Perhaps your kana books had some practice exercises; work on those continuously until you can read them fluidly; and consider buying some additional kana books if it looks like they focus fairly heavily on reading practice.
