Do your students like television shows like American Idol or The Voice? Here is a way to practice fluency and have some fun!
Each week a selected group of contestants practice and perform (read) a piece of poetry or a reader's theater in front of the class. This gives the students an authentic purpose for rereading and working on expression, accuracy, and rate. Directions are included in this power point presentation. A printable scoring sheet for classmates to use and fluency idol brag tags are also included.
Poems and reader's theater scripts are NOT included. You may choose to use any reading material that is appropriate for your students. You may add props or backgrounds to make it more fun!
