Product Description
This resource was created for the purpose of giving 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade students opportunities to fine-tune and perfect their fluency, reading, and oral language development skills by practicing prosody during Spring Break/Spring Recess. Prosody refers to the expression in which someone reads. It is the intonation, rhythm, and emphasis given to specific words and phrases when reading them out loud. When students practice prosody, what they’re really doing is experimenting with different ways to adjust the tone, pitch, and timbre of their voices--just by reading! Fun!

Here is how reading for prosody during Spring Break works:
*First, students practice phonics and decoding skills by reading a specific set of words related to the sentence sets.
*Next, students practice prosody by reading the bold-printed words, using emphasis, intonation, and rhythm in each sentence set.
*After practicing prosody, students complete the mini-extension problems as a “quick check” of decoding and phonics skills.
*Then, one (1) lesson printable per day is completed is completed for further decoding, phonics, and vocabulary practice.
*Last, when Spring Break is over, the entire prosody packet signed by a parent or guardian and then returned to the teacher for credit.

Other Reminders:
*I’ve also included a student cover, should you want to make a “book,” or “packet” for your students. The cover, learning objective, sentence set title sheet, phonics practice word lists, prosody practice pages, prosody sentence tracker, and extension practice printables total up to about 22 pages. Copying these pages back-to-back (2-sided) will save you paper and reduce the size of the “book” to about 11 pages. NOTE: students usually have about five (5) days off for Spring Break/Spring Recess, but I’ve included three (3) extra prosody practice pages for your ambitious and industrious kiddos. :)
*There are anchor charts included in this resource. You may want to copy these on bright colored paper (think Astrobrights!) to give them some “pop!”
*All pages produced with colored ink can be printed using the “grayscale” option should you feel the need to do so.
