The Little Children That Can: Growing Independence and Fluency

Get ready to boost fluency in the classroom with this lesson geared toward elementary readers. Listening to the first half of The Little Engine That Could,  learners focus on how voice changes create expression. They then read the rest of the book in pairs of two, taking turns to read for three one minute bursts while the partner records how far they were able to get during that time. The teacher will need to create their own assessment tool.
