Meet Eveliina Anderson, who is going to read to us today.
COMPARE/CONTRAST: After watching this video, what can you say is similar about this read aloud to other read aloud stories you’ve experienced? What is different about it? Write your ideas in your Reading Journal.
FLUENCY: We have learned a whole BUNCH this year about reading fluency. Just think of all the skills on our CAFE board! WOW!
Listen again to Eveliina, while you think about the fluency skills she puts to use. In your reading journal, write examples of the fluency skills you see her using in the video.
Here’s the BIG NEWS:
Eveliina was only TWO YEARS OLD when this video was created! That’s right — TWO!
Knowing that, please draw some conclusions about Eveliina and her experiences as a reader, which led her to this book recording. Consider the following questions:
1. Do you think she is reading the book?
2. How do you think she was able to memorize the words in the book?
3. Do you think she enjoys reading?
4. Why do you think she reads with such great fluency?
5. Who do you think reads to Eveliina?
6. When Eveliina starts school, what kind of reader do you think she’ll become?
Computer Lab Today: I want you to leave a comment on this page, answering the following question:
After watching Eveliina’s video, do you think it is important to read to children when they are very little? WHY? What details did you think about today that led you to believe reading to children is important? Use specific details from the video in your answer.
