Winter Comes by Nancy
Van Laan, one of the reading groups in the Bee Room practiced
reading fluency using this Kidspiration activity.
the teacher read the story to the students. Always looking

and answer format. The students practiced reading the answer
each question until the words were familiar and the reading
was smooth. Then the students used the Kidspiration activity
to record their reading. The students worked in pairs with

for smoothness and good voice.
worked together to read all the things that the animals did
when winter comes. They
enjoyed listening to each other read on the computer.
