Word by Word Matching

We practiced one of our CAFE strategies for Fluency today called "Word by Word Matching". This strategy helps the students match the words on the page to the words they are saying by pointing to each word as they read. We first read the poem as a class and then students came up to the chart and read individually. They did an excellent job reading each of the words in the chart and as they were matching the words they were reading to the words in the chart they were able to monitor themselves that they were reading the correct words. There were a couple of students who were pointing to the word "like" for example and said the word "have". Since they were focusing on their word by word matching they realized they had read the incorrect word and corrected themselves before moving on.
