This Express It! lesson plan also includes:
Partners practice reading fluency by reciting these sentence strips to each other with proper expression and intonation. There are 14 sentences provided, each from familiar stories your learners will likely recall. Partner A chooses a strip at random and reads it, first silently then aloud with expression. Partner B reads the same sentence with different phrasing, intonation, or expression, explaining why they chose to read it that way. Pairs switch roles as they move through the sentences and can even write one of their own!
