Focus on Fluency
Students listen to a grade appropriate story being read to them and make notes about what the reader did well.
Teacher reviews how a fluent reader can read all of the words, adds expression or emphasis and pays attention to punctuation.
2 Direct Instruction
Teacher and students create an anchor chart of what a fluent reader sounds like.
3 Guided/Independent Practice
Teacher will model how to take a picture of a page students are reading in their just right book and save it to Evernote.
Then, the teacher will model how to record and read the passage.
Last, the teacher will model how to replay the passage. The students will work with partners. The partner will offer 2 glows or strengths and one grow or weakness.
Students can then reflect and reread to make improvements.
Students can then record how they improved. Recordings can be emailed to parents to communicate progress and improvement in fluency.
