Fancy Fluency in the Middle Classroom

My students need CD players to listen to fluent readers in order to develop their own fluent reading style.

My Students

"Readers are Leaders." This is what I instill in my students, everyday. Also, I share with them, "good readers make good writers."

The 6th and 7th graders assigned to my reading intervention classes are challenged with reading and comprehending text adequately.

I teach at a Title 1 school with 100% free and reduced lunch participation. The student demographics are 70% Hispanic, 20% African American, 8% Asian, and 2% other.

My Project

Most under-serviced students do not have books read to them. In my classroom, I have a listening work station in need of four CD players and four headphones for students to listen to books and follow along in the text. At this work station, my students will listen for new vocabulary, highlight them in text, and record in their journal. Furthermore, they will listen to the reader use his/her voice to match the punctuation. Overtime, they will mimic the technique to increase their fluency.

Listening to recorded reading will help build my student's reading and writing skills that will be tested on the state test.

My students will have access to on or above grade level novels. I've see my reluctant readers listen to a piece they might not have encountered on their own. While listening to text, students engage in lots of inferencing about the characters and the plot of short stories. The CD players will complete the workstation and open to my students new horizons through books.
