Lesson Plan for Reading Fluency
2. Content-
Reading Fluency
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1. The student will read fiction and nonfiction using a variety of strategies independently.

2. Read stories, poems, and passages with fluency and expression.

3. Re-read and self-correct when necessary.
4. Objectives-
1. Given 3 repeated readings at their independent level students will read 82 words per minute on 2 out of 3 passages.
5. Materials and Aids-
Books borrowed from the library on a variety of topics for the students to choose from.
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1. Ask the students what an adult sounds like when they read something aloud.
2. Lead the students to recognize that an adult pays attention to all punctuation, pauses at the end of sentences, doesn't hesitate reading words, etc.
3. Ask the students how they think adults are able to read like that? (practice)
4. Explain to the students that they will practice readings books of their choice (in their instructional level) so they can begin sounding like an adult when they read.

B. Development-

1. Allow the students to choose a book they would like to practice reading.
2. Read this book allowed to the students.
3. After reading, discuss the attributes of fluent reading again (punctuation, pauses, not hesitating, etc.)

C. Practice-

1. Allow the students time to read the book silently. This will allow the student time to get familiar with the story.
2. Have the students read the stories aloud in pairs. (Pair students together that are of different skill level)
3. Assist the students when needed. (Sounding out words, pointing out punctuation, etc.)

D. Independent Practice-

1. Have the student read the story aloud without any assistance.
2. While doing this, time the students for one minute.
3. Have the students keep reading until there is an evident increase in the words per minute count.
4. Evaluation will occur throughout the lesson.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

Accommodations come in the assistance the students get from the teacher. The teacher can read the story aloud with the students more than once to demonstrate fluency. Students with learning disabilities may also benefit from breaks between readings.

F. Checking for understanding-

Have the students repeatedly read the passage until the goal criteria is met.

G. Closure-

Have students return books and ask the class to share their stories with the class.
7. Evaluation-
Chart words read per minute on worksheets for students to fill out each time we do this activity so they can be motivated and also see their improvement.
