Grade 3 ELA Module 1, Unit 2, Lesson 9

Students listening

DEVELOPING READING FLUENCY: SELECTING A TEXT AND PRACTICING READING ALOUD

This lesson involves fluency practice, so students may read their own independent reading book. By contrast, Lesson 10 involves a formal assessment of students’ fluency, so ideally students will all read the same text. Use professional judgment if some students simply will not succeed with a text at the official grade-level Lexile band.

This lesson serves two purposes. First, students can practice for their assessment; and, second, it might provide an idea for a service project to do as an extension of this unit: reading aloud and creating audio recordings of books or poems, to then share with younger children or others. See the Optional Extensions note at the end of the Unit 2 Overview.
