ABOUT MY LESSONS and CHORAL READINGS
Advancing reading fluency through rich vocabulary text is so powerful.
Doing this in a group setting allows for modeling of: phrasing, pace, rate, and overall smoothness with attention to expression and volume when reading aloud.
Teacher interactive choral readings optimize teacher modeling and give all
students a chance to chunk and tackle rich, multisyllabic vocabulary together.
Together is the key because all reading levels merge to create one fluent voice.
These texts reach out to third - fifth grade classrooms but can be adapted for others.
With two-four pages of rich text masters, copies can be given to each reader, then 20 -30 minute lessons can be planned and practiced daily. I use them in fluency lessons with entire class and repeated readings can occur until fluent reading is achieved.
Sometimes I will use guided reading 20 minute lessons with small groups to reinforce chunking of the rich vocabulary as well as comprehending the words within the text.
I use these texts to highlight and present to parents our reading fluency growth.
It is amazing to interact with students in these performances! Parents will love it too!
Enjoy advancing reading fluency in your class!
