Day 19: ExPResSIon!!!

Part of my job is to teach struggling readers how to read~ often these readers lack fluency and expression.  One of my favorite thing to do is model the reading and have them repeat after me.  I tend to be very dramatic anyway~ so I will read in a very eXpResSIve way~ I believe that the more dramatic you are in reading, the more the children will pay attention and will catch on.  This is one of those moments that I truly love having two hearing~ it brings on such a smile when I hear the students repeat exactly the way I read a line.  I love it because it sounds so melodramatic and cute~ the pitch of voices go up a bit when there’s a question mark; stretch those words when necessary; get a little loud with excitement when those awesome  exclamation point comes along.  I make them all feel so proud of themselves and encourage them all to become actors and actresses.  You should see their faces beam with pride!
