sentences for the
child and record
your reading with
Easi-Speak. Point
out the different
types of punctuation
that help identify
sentences as
questions,
exclamations,
or statements.
Guide
3. Have the student identify and write two or more examples of a question, an exclamation, or a statement and tell you what types of punctuation are used in each sentence.
4. Then have the student ready and record a passage from the book with Easi-Speak.
Assess
5. Have the student
listen to his or
her recording and
point out the
punctuation that affects his or her phrasing, tone, and expression. The student self-assesses the reading and repeats the activity.

6. Listen to the recording and document students' ability to read with appropriate intonation and phrasing.
Extend
7. Pairs of students do the activity together. Have one student read and record a passage while the other student follows along in the book. Students model reading with expression for one another.
