Using Modeled Reading, Phrasing, and Repeated Oral Reading
Help the students in your classroom improve their reading fluency and, as a result, improve their comprehension of text. Includes a variety of fun activities that will help you meet district, state, and national reading standards as you teach students how to develop reading fluency -- a key component in the research-based findings about what contributes to overall reading success. Also includes intervention instruction for "robotic readers." The fun activities will help students develop reading fluency and confidence as they learn to read with expression, intonation, and a natural flow!Developing Reading Fluency will help you meet district, state, and national reading standards as you teach students how to develop reading fluency. This resource guide features five activity sections to help you model fluency, have children practice reading fluently with your guidance and feedback, and encourage them to independently apply the strategies to their everyday reading. The final section contains additional instruction to help you meet the needs of "robotic readers" who still struggle with reading fluency. Use the Interactive Read-Alouds, Cheers and Chants, Read-Arounds, Plays for Two, and Reader's Theater to excite and motivate children to read and reread text until they can fluently read it with expression, intonation, and a natural flow. Copy the ready-to-use reproducibles, model fluent reading for children, and watch as their abilities and self-confidence soar!
