Using Poetry to Increase Fluency

Each week the children are working on a new poem. We read it each day and by Friday the goal is to have everyone reading it fluently. The poem then goes home and the children try to collect as many Lucky Listener signatures as they can. At some point on Friday one or more children will be recorded reading the poem in a fluent manner.


Please take a moment to enjoy listening to our poems.
