I wanted to share some tips about teaching young students who are just learning English, reading skills. I made these fluency readers last year for my class and they are on sale on TPT https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Kindergarten-Wonders-Units-9-10-Long-Vowel-Fluency-Readers-5040173
Preteaching vocabulary can really improve fluency for English language learners. I found it difficult for my students to advance their reading with no context for the words they were being asked to read so I made these for my students… We typically did a movement activity each Friday for extra practice reading, and it made it fun for the students. I would play music and they would walk and dance around the classroom until the music stopped, they would find a partner and then each take turns reading to one another. They did a great job helping one another decode word and read their high frequency words.
