Look! Up in the air! It's Poetry Power Man ready to fly into your classroom to do battle with the evil Robot Reader!
Here's a way to add fun to your fluency instruction! Tell your kids that they are going to do battle with the evil Robot Reader and his sidekicks - Choppy Boy, Flat Man, and Alien Dude. These bad guys want everyone to read like a robot -- chopping each word and reading in a flat tone without understanding.
But no reason to fear! Poetry Power Man's buddies will save the day! They are Super Scooper who demonstrates how to scoop phrases, Expression Man who makes oral reading sound like talking, and Captain Comprehension who promotes summarizing, connecting, and learning new vocabulary.
So, check out this poster as well as the free downloads of these characters. Cut and paste the good guys and the bad guys opposite one another, perched on popsicle sticks. The battle for fluency will be ON! All you need is an engaging poem and the instructional routine, also available in a free download!
