Using ipods to Improve Fluency for Daily 5
 I love this youtube video on using ipods and ipads for improving reading fluency.

This past week I have been having readers struggling with fluency use audio memo that comes on the ipod touches.  They read a page or two in their book and then listen to it.  Then repeat the process 3 times.  It is so neat to listen back to their recordings and hear their fluency getting better each time. I have been conferencing with them and showing them how their recording time is getting slower each time and sounding more like talking.  I asked one little girl if she could hear how much better she sounded each time.  Her eyes lit up when I was praised her for how much better she sounded by the last recording.  I would also like to create some sort of rubric so these students can reflect on their fluency.

What do you do to help your students improve their reading fluency?

  1. Great idea - simple, but effective. The video you included demonstrates it perfectly! I like the self-reflection piece. I am going to tweet the link back to this blog post! Thanks for sharing!
