weave it into everyday instruction

I make fluency part of everyday instruction. We read a Morning Message as a class every day where I focus on rhythm and how we change voice patterns for different punctuation. We listen to our reading story on tape once a week, and I require my kids to follow along using their index finger. I think they notice more that way. When we read in their science or scoial studies books, we read chorally. If students don't read with the same cadence, we read it again. I require them to read all instructions for worksheets out loud together, too. If I read them anything, my rule is "I'll read to you. If you don't follow along (meaning with a finger) then you'll read to me." We recently sat down as a team to go over Dibels results and my kids had really high scores compared to the other classes. I guess it's working!
