Trish Prentice meets with one of her kindergarten students in this conference. He is working to read fluently, with expression. Since reading is always about making meaning, Trish also weaves in predicting, making connections, and check for understanding, all in less than five minutes.
Reading the text smoothly and with expression is a Common Core State Standard for all grade levels. This lesson could be revised to match your grade-level expectations. Find the standard that aligns with your grade level on our CAFE Menu/CCSS Grade-Level Matrix.
