Reading with Expression cards 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 2 What I’m teaching: • To read simple texts with expression. What we’re learning: • We are learning how to read with expression to make reading more interesting. How did we do? • I can use 2 or more different strategies to read with expression. • I can read aloud to entertain an audience. What I Need: Reading with Expression card instructions 1 set of Reading with Expression cards A favourite picture book Getting Ready: Have students seated on the floor close to you. Make sure that each student can see the picture book and the Reading with Expression cards. Tuning in Share the learning intention and success criteria with the group. Review with the group which strategies they should use if they come across a difficult word. Learn with me Begin the lesson by reading a section of the picture book with a dull, monotone expression. This is meant to show the group how boring it is for an audience if you read this way. Then reread the section of text with fluency and expression. Ask the students to tell you how the second reading was different. Which reading did they all like the best? Why? Explain to the group why it is important to read with intonation and expression. Introduce each of the Reading with Expression Cards one at a time. It is vital that you model how to read each of the target sentences. (You will find example sentences on the card instructions.) Your turn Ask a student to choose a Reading with Expression Card, but not to show it to anyone. You should then read a sentence from the picture book. Students should try to guess which card was chosen. Back Together Review the learning intention and success criteria. Ask students to name at least 2 of the Reading with Expression strategies. Tell students that they will be showing you how well they can use these strategies in their guided reading time. Ideas for extra support You may like to use the Reading with Expression cards during guided reading. That way students can practise with text at their independent level.
