Oh, Alexander!: Growing Independence and Fluency
Show young learners the difference between reading in monotone and reading with emotion through reading a short passage in both manners. While listening to a partner read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, kids think about and record ideas for using expression in writing. One of the links provided has an assessment checklist for the teacher to use, while the other link has an example of a peer-review checklist that could be incorporated.
