This A Speeding Rocket, a Shooting Star... It's a Racing Reader! lesson plan also includes:
Prepare a gameboard and die-cut race cars to play a fun fluency game. Also create several flash cards to review the long /i/ sound. Then, model reading smoothly and with expression, emphasizing the importance of re-reading texts to become fluent. Finally, have partners use a book and timers (one is suggested here but any story with long /i/ sounds would do) to play the fluency game, taking turns reading for one-minute intervals.
