Reading for Accuracy

Clip to ScrapBook #2

One way that I have made my students focus on accuracy is by having them practice tongue twisters. I generally bribe them with "Smarties" as their reward but they MUST READ 100% ACCURATELY to get the prize. I may offer a prize of 10 packages of Smarties to the person who reads the whole thing to me WITH OUT ERROR the first time they read it to me. They are given some time to practice and a copy to take home and practice. I have never given out 10 packages of Smarties! They continue to work at the tongue twister until they get it correct. I subtract one package of smarties each day and they can only try one time per day. I'm sure that I have given 5 packages at one time and maybe once 7. My favorite is Betty Botter and it is quite challenging.

Good Luck and let me know if you give it a try!
