When learning to read, students initially sound like stilted robots. The goal is to advance their fluency so that they move through sentences smoothly and effortlessly like a gliding skateboarder. To achieve this, readers must improve more than just their reading rate. They need to practice reading text in phrases and with prosody. Help students learn to adjust their voices to include appropriate expression, intonation, volume, and pacing using the What’s My Voice?
