Lesson Model Video: Reading Decodable Text – Fourth and Fifth Grade

In this video, the teacher provides 4th and 5th graders practice with decodable text reading opportunities with a small group. The students read a paragraph at a time, once by themselves for accuracy and the second time together for fluency practice. Notice the teacher providing a student-friendly definition and example of an unknown word.

This lesson aligns to Step 5 (Apply to Decodable Text) of the Explicit Phonics Lesson Sequence shown in the Teaching Reading Sourcebook, p. 175.
