MondayDecember 5, 2011fluencySuccessful Readers.Read aloud at a pace they would use in conversation.Do not read too quickly or too slowly for readers to understand.The sea is a hungry dog,Giant and gray.He rolls on the beach all day.With his clashing teeth and shaggy jawsHour upon hour he gnawsThe rumbling, tumbling stones,And Bones, bones, bones, bones!The giant sea-dog moans,Licking his greasy paws.
And when the night wind roarsAnd the moon rocks in the stormy cloud,He bounds his feet and snuffs and sniffs,Shaking his wet sides all over the cliffs,And howls and hollos long and loud.
But on quiet days in May or June,When even the grasses on the dunePlay no more their reedy tune,With his head between his pawsHe lies on the sandy shores,So quiet, so quiet, he scarcely snores.The Sea by James Reeves- Echo ReadVocabulary
