Hello Blog Hoppin Fans!! I haven't officially introduced myself as an Author on this blog so let me start by saying that my name is Stacy from Mrs. Johnson's First Grade. I have only been a part of the blogging world since May, but boy has it been AMAZING! I have seen and read so many inspiring things and it makes me feel like a first year teacher again! So many new ideas to choose from! Well, it's my turn to share some thing that has worked for me in the area of Reading Fluency. Let me tell you that this has been one of the hardest areas to try and master as a teacher and I still don't have all the answers! Besides S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g words or "Keepin your motor runnin", I finally figured out a way that helps students "hear" when they read. If they can't "hear" what they are reading, they can't really apply any other Reading Strategies but decoding. So, here are the 2 items I use with my students to help them to "hear" their voices.
Hope you all enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Yes! Another sleep in day! Well, only until my 4 year old wakes up!
