Reading Fluency

During our Reading Workshop time this week the children who stay with me have been learning about and working on Reading Fluency.

We looked at and talked about what Fluent Readers look like and sound like.


To help us to practice this important skill we started to work on a Gerald and Piggie Readers Theatre. We found that the more we practiced our parts- the easier it was to read them and our fluency improved. We are going to practice a little bit more- and then we will perform them for the other students.

Today we were lucky to have  Crystal from the Martensville Vet Clinic come to visit our class to talk about Dog Safety.

She taught us about 5 tools for us to use to help keep us safe around dogs.

The tools she taught us are;

1. Be a Tree/Be a Rock if a dog is jumping around you

2. Use your eyes to see if the dog is friendly

3.Use your mouth to ask permission of your parents, the dog owner, and the dog

4. Fist– let the dog sniff your fist

5. Legs– use your legs to walk away from an unfriendly dog.

She did a wonderful presentation and we were lucky to have her visit our classroom!
