I went to the website that you mentioned because I knew that I needed to incorporate Reader’s Theatre in my lesson plans more frequently so that I could help build their fluency and now that I actually have readers! I loved the first grade links. Thank you very much for sharing those. Our county requires first graders to leave our classroom reading 50 wpm at a DRA level 14. For example Just me and my dad by Mercer Mayer would have to be read by a first grader in May in under five minutes! I think that is a “big bear” for some students- especially if they enter your classroom not knowing their letters/sounds.

I will definitely use these to help my students be successful in reading and with their fluency.
