Metacognition and Fluency

Learning to read is easy peasy for some kids.  For others, it is a more arduous task.  

In Becky Bloom's Wolf, the title character strives to become more "educated" like the farm animals he originally sets out to ingest.  His first attempts are very Dick and Jane.  Run Wolf, run.  Then he comes back with this gem of an example of a fluency intervention: 

This book and the journey of the wolf are a great conversation starter for metacogntion with some of our youngest readers, discussing how we think about our thinking, learning, and processes associated with fluent reading.

We have three copies of this book.  I am really enjoying getting to know the collection!
