Here's a perfect way to get your students engaged with their reading...Voice Energizers! Say It Like You Licked a Lemon is a set of 26 quarter-page sized cards with voice prompts for your students to use while reading aloud. There is a card/voice for each letter of the alphabet (hence the name: L is Licked a Lemon.) A few other examples are P is Polly Parrot and B is Buzzing Bee. Some of the cards will force your students to really think about the prompt, causing them to use their schema and imagination. This is a great time to expand their vocabulary and knowledge of people/things they may not be so used to using (talking like?)
These would be perfect to use when reading paragraphs or stories aloud. Another use for them would be partner reading or in small groups. Your students will be begging to use the Voice Cards when they read trust me...They'll ask to do them over and over! And what a perfect way to get them engaged and excited about reading! These can be used for all primary grades, First through Fifth. Young and old enjoy this activity!
