Activities: Reading (Fluency)

Expression

Overview

Objective

The computer reads a text using different expressions and the child must decide if the passage was read appropriately. The child must then read the same text practicing correct use of expression.


Levels

This activity is appropriate for all reading levels. Even with picture books, reading or speaking with proper expression should be modeled when texts or pictures warrant it. For example, if a fire scene is illustrated, speak about it with some excitement or emotion such as sadness or fear in your voice.
