This fun, fast, student-driven lesson is designed to help students read aloud faster and with more clarity. Students work in pairs to practice reading a short passage. Students will compete against themselves in order to achieve their goal of reading faster and with as few errors as possible.
This activity can and should be used often throughout the school year. It only takes 15-30 minutes so it's perfect for a mini-lesson or even as a back up plan when technology fails!
