Guided Reading

I have found that plays are one of the best ways to work on fluency and expression with young readers. This past week one of my guided reading groups worked on the play, The Giant Jumperee. After working on the play for a week in a guided reading group with an emphasis on fluency, they presented the play to the class. I found the printable animal masks for free online at, The kids colored, cut and taped the masks to some rulers. Then they held the masks up to their face when it was their turn to read. What a great job they did!
