Don't Be Shy, Express Yourself!

How do we teach children to read with expression? One approach is modeling. The teacher reads a passage with and without expression, and also with different emotions, allowing the class to discuss the differences. Afterward, small groups read the book Rainbow Fish and Friends: Hide and Seek, identifying correct punctuation for the endings of sentences, and using reading expression strategies.Assessment procedures are included.
