You Read to Me, I'll Read to You - Fluency

video
This week during Daily 5, I have been working with pairs of students on reading fluency.  The series of books You Read to Me, I'll Read to You are perfect for this skill.  My kiddos were having fun and practicing reading at the same time!  Once the first two students performed for the class, everyone was asking BEGGING for their turn to read!
These books contain rhythm, rhyme, and repetition that makes reading fun.  Performing them in front of the class with a friend is a bonus.  The pages are color coded for two readers.  One child might read the pink words.  The other child the blue.  When the words are orange and in the middle, they read together!
Here are a few of the books:
