Whisper Phones to Increase Fluency

It's Tips on Tuesday time!!   How many of you out there have some robot readers?  Here's an easy and fun way to increase fluency and expression with your young readers.

1.  Head to your local home improvement store.

2.  Look for C-shaped pieces of PVC pipes.  They're called elbow pipes and range from $1 to $10.  Try some on for size!

3.  Have your child use these "phones" to practice reading.  Just hold them up to your ear and start reading!  Even if you're whispering into the "phones," you'll be surprised at how well the sound travels around the bend!

Whisper phones will make it easier for your child to hear exactly how they sound while reading.  Sometimes it's hard to fix something if you don't know exactly what you're fixing!  Hope this helps!  Have fun!
