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 helped me dramatically, giving me instant access to so many lessons, worksheets and rich ideas. It has helped me to continue to deliver high interest instruction to students with cross categorical special needs in high school inclusive settings, which is no simple matter. Due to the ease, quickness and richness of the materials on this site, my life as a first year teacher has been made infinitely better to say the least.
