21ST DAY IF JULY PD - VOICE BOX

video

We’ve always known that repetition is a key to skill mastery. However, if children simply practice reading, or counting, or other skills over and over they will get bored. These fluency cards will engage children by letting them use silly voices and movements as they learn.

These strategies can be used for rereading books, saying poems, reading the word wall, counting, and reviewing numerous skills. If they say it, they will remember it!!
                                
What? small box or gift bag, copy of fluency cards

How? Write “voice box” on the box or bag. Cut apart the fluency cards and place them in the box. Children choose cards and then practice reading with that “voice.”

Here’s a video where you can watch me demonstrate the different styles and strategies. The more dramatic you are, the more your students will get involved.
