Before You Watch

Session Preparation

Materials Needed.

Several books with good rimes you use with your students.

Throughout this session, questions are posed to guide you through the topic. If you are working in a group discuss your responses; if you are working alone reflect on them in your journal.

To prepare for the workshop session you will tap your prior knowledge, read two articles on word study and fluency, and review important terms.
