You were probably thinking to yourself, "I wish I had a great news program to listen to."
Well blog visitors, the kids in Room 208 have the answer for you!
This week, our focus is all about relating to the text and reading aloud with fluency. We're talking a lot about how to make our reading sound just like the way people talk when we read.
So to make this a super-fun, community-building activity, we're going to be bringing you the "Back to School News Report" really soon!
We're using a news report script I wrote over the summer and pretty soon, each child will receive their part. This activity is intended to be a real confidence builder, so there are reading parts for every level.
When we're all practiced and ready to go, we're going to record our news report (just the audio, no video) and post it here for families to listen to!
We read through the script today, and just as I had hoped, there was lots of connections being made, lots of laughter and plenty of fluent reading!
We don't know how long it will take us to get to that "ready-to-record" stage, but when we do, we'll be sure to let you know! In the meantime, I'm going to start sending the script home later this week for practicing. Students do NOT need to memorize their lines as this is a "radio show".
