This reading lesson is completely dedicated to FLUENCY and improving our reading so that we become fluent readers. This means that we:
- read at the right speed (not too fast but not too slowly so we maintain engagement),
- read and take into account the necessary punctuation (stopping at full stops, raising our voice at question marks),
- blend words correctly (so there are no robot readers) and
- speak with expression to match the atmosphere of the writing (is the character scared, excited..)
Today's task is to read the Polar Bear Information powerpoint slide by slide (non-fiction is harder to read but still needs to be fluent) and practise reading as effectively and FLUENTLY as possible. You need to keep the listener engaged and interested in your information.
You could record yourself, listen back and think if you could improve.
If you have someone at home to read with, you could play some of our fluency games (see pictures/instructions below).
IF YOU FEEL CONFIDENT TO, WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR SOME OF YOUR FLUENCY ACTIVITIES. TRY RECORDING YOURSELF AND SENDING THROUGH ON DOJO PORTFOLIOS.
