Spontaneous Inventions

This Spontaneous Inventions lesson plan also includes:

Reading out loud can be a real thrill for some, and a real issue for others. Teach your class that reading with inflection and fluency can be as easy as singing a song. They'll first analyze two Bobby McFerrin songs for intonation, pitch, tone, and tempo. They'll then build similar criteria to judge their reading with. They'll read parts of the book James and the Giant Peach while thinking about their reading like they would their singing.
