Expression Direction: Growing Independence and Fluency

Looking to move children away from monotone reading? That's what they will practice here. In a guided learning lesson, the class reviews punctuation marks and practices what type of intonation should accompany each. They then listen as the teacher uses effective reading expression. In pairs, they read to each other, first without expression, and then a second time with effective expression. Some preparation is required to create sentence strips and the assessment sheet.

Lesson Planet has greatly assisted me in finding appropriate worksheets to accompany my lesson plans. I recently switched from high school to junior high and needed assistance in finding grade appropriate material.
