PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is a research-based fluency practice that will help your students begin to use prosody in their reading. Using jokes to build fluency is based on a Reading Teacher article by Molly Ness titled “Laughing Through Rereadings: Using Joke Books to Build Fluency.” We often consider speed and accuracy when looking at fluency, but measuring prosody is more difficult. Prosody is reading with the correct emphasis, stress, pitch, intonation, tempo and rhythm. What better way to help students build prosody than by using jokes?

Have you ever heard a joke with lousy delivery? The oral delivery of a joke is important! Using jokes as the text for fluency practice requires practice. This download is perfect for sending home. There are 12 different joke pages with instructions for families to help their students or you can use them in class. Either way jokes make the perfect text for increasing fluency and even more specifically prosody in your students’ reading.

This download includes:
Pages 1-2 - Title page and copyright information
Page 3 – “What is Fluency?” Information Page
Page 4 – “Ways to Help Students” information page with ideas from the article
Page 5 – “Different Ways to Incorporate Jokes for Fluency” page with ideas I have used
Pages 6 through 17 – Twelve different joke pages that can be sent home or used in class for fluency practice
Page 18 - Font and Graphics Information

Thanks for considering this product.
