In my previous post, I shared the concept of using a "Never, ever" poster as a visual representation of phonics rules, which students may use as a reference for spelling. Today, I am sharing a version that may be used as a reference poster for fluent reading.
I often discuss "robot reading" with my students. We call the expressionless, halting style of reading "Robot Reading" because, obviously, it sounds more like the voice of a robot than that of a fluent reader. In order to become fluent readers, students must learn to read with smooth, expressive voices -very much as though they are having a conversation with the text.
We really have a lot of fun with this, and during one of my classes recently, a student eagerly said, "Mrs. Tally, that should be on our Never, Ever poster! Robot Reading!" So, with respect to her suggestion, I have designed a separate Never, ever poster that I will display in my fluency center. It is a very kid-friendly graphic, and I can't wait to share it with my classes this week.here in the Tally Tales TPT store. I have added several freebies to the store recently, so feel free to look around and grab those. I try to share any TPT freebies here as well, but if you want to make sure you stay up-to-date on freebies and sales in the future, simply become a follower of the Tally Tales TPT store.
