In our class, we call this reading so our voices sound like warm chocolate syrup – smooth and silky! When we are reading something for the first time, our voices may sound choppy like waves. Fluency improves through multiple readings of a text. This week, we are practicing the poem called, "The ABC's - Forwards and Backwards." By the end of the week, this poem will sound smooth and silky, just like chocolate syrup - mmmmm!
