I had the opportunity to hear Tim Risinski at a reading conference this Friday and thought I'd throw some awesome ideas out for you! He suggested that you send home a readers theater poem/speech for them every Monday. Practice it for about five minutes every morning and on Fridays have them read it to the class with emphasis. This gives them practice reading and increases fluency and comprehension. He said that if you do simply this you can make a gain of a year and a half with your entire class! Also, begin each day with a song (all the classics, I've been working on the railroad, take me out to be ballgame, yankee doodle). Once they know the song by heart switch the words to it. For instance, Alan Katz books are awesome because he took all of these tunes and wrote new words. Then they have to read the words to know which version they are singing! Check out his book. He had so many ideas these are only a couple!
