Fluent reading is powerful when perfected!
This text reaches 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! Combine this text with songs and other choral readings for powerful grade level school performances small or large. My Parents love our class performances!
