Fluency Weekly Lesson Plan

Name: Kristen Davison Student Name: Makayla Student Grade Level: 4th grade

As a result of completing the Qualitative Reading Inventory with Makayla, I determined that she has a decent handle on comprehension but could use
work on fluency. I noticed that she often reads words a few times over before seeming confident that they are right, and she does not read with
prosody and expression. She has 2 other students in her small group for reading who would all benefit from the same type of lesson on fluency. They
are all English Language Learners and read at about a 1st grade reading level. Since they are in 4th grade but reading on a 1st grade reading level, I am
incorporating both 1st and 4th grade SOLs.

On November 14, 2017, I taught a lesson on fluency to Makaylas reading group of three students. These students are English
Language Learners and are currently reading at about a first grade reading level. I chose fluency as the targeted concept because they often work
with my cooperating teacher on word study. Also, after administering the QRI to Makayla, I found that she is fairly proficient in comprehension, but
her fluency including both accuracy and prosody could use some extra practice. I found a fluency practice online and re-made it to tailor to my
students needs.
In order to introduce the lesson, I used the word cards with pictures to make sure the students were familiar with the different
animals and objects they would be reading about in the passages. I showed the word cards one at a time and asked the students to identify them.
They were excited to do so. For example, when I showed the picture of the gum, one of the students showed that she knew what it was by
pretending to chew it. When I showed the jump rope, she stood up and pretended to jump rope. After this, I was confident that the students were
familiar with the words. I wanted to ensure understanding because these students are English Language Learners. My lesson would have been
somewhat ineffective if the students did not know what they were reading about.
One at a time, the students rolled the die and read the passage associated with that number. I noticed that the third time they read
each passage was a vast improvement from the first time. I was glad that there were three stars for each passage so they would get the
opportunity to re-read. As they continued to read, I noticed they were excited for their turn to arrive. They were engaged during the lesson and
were able to focus in on each passage as they were reading. When they stumbled on a word, which only happened the first time reading through, I
asked them to sound it out and helped if they were still having trouble. As they were completing the activity, one student asked if, after coloring
three stars for a passage, they could receive the word card associated with that passage. For example, once they read the passage about the frog
three times, they could receive the frog card and cover up that passage. I agreed, and this made it even more like a game. By the end, each
student had 2 word cards they were able to keep. I could tell that they had felt accomplished after reading.
After giving the lesson, I felt good about how it went. The students had an opportunity to practice reading accurately, and I think this
would be a helpful activity to do again while incorporating higher level passages as they learn more words. Overall, I enjoyed delivering this lesson
and creating ideas for a sequence of five fluency lessons. It provided me with the opportunity to see how lessons fit together and build on one
