Fluency Final
1.      Review the Fluency Rubric.  Make sure you have a copy of it in your binder!
2.     Review rules for Phrasing.
• What are the rules for where to PHRASE something (slashes)?
• What do you do when there are no rules?
• Why is PHRASING important? 
• How will PHRASING help your listeners understand your reading?
3.     Review rules for Super Signals.
4.     Complete Fluency Prep Sheet #1 over your first book.
5.     Set the timer on your phone, and read your book to yourself.
6.     Write the TIME it took you to read on the upper right corner of your Prep Sheet #1.
7.     Turn Prep Sheet #1 into the drawer.
Please read your Read and Relax book quietly until everyone has finished Prep Sheet #1.  Thank you!

Fluency Final Prep, Part II
1.      Get a copy of the ballot.
2.     Look over it with me, and fill out the top part.
3.     Get with your partner, and read Book #1 to him/her.  (Partner, you MUST time the person read, and write the time in the upper right corner of the rubric.)
4.     Your grade today comes from the thoughtful, detailed comments you make on each other’s papers. 
5.     Be honest.  Don’t give each other “4”s.  What are the odds you perform your book perfectly on the first aloud attempt?  You’ll help your partner more by giving honest, constructive criticism than you will by saying, “You’re perfect! Don’t change a thing!”
6.     I cannot stress this enough—you have to be stellar if you leave the room to prep.  My colleagues have graciously allowed us to ENROACH on their space.  My super-respectful at all time, say “Please” and “Thank You”, and be on task!

·      We reviewed people’s wiki #5 definitions to take some notes on what a myth is (page 2).
·      I handed out beast backgrounds on twenty-one creatures.
·      We had half the block to create a Powerpoint to show the class who/what/why your beast is.
·      I handed out a checklist for this assignment, which I will use to evaluate your slideshow tomorrow.

Finish your Myth Beast Powerpoint--you will present it tomorrow!
